There is a process to becoming an individual volunteer.
As part of our screening process, we review every application carefully. Our goal is to have a mutually beneficial placement, where our volunteers have a rewarding experience in a position that fits your interests, skills, and availability.
Our 4-step process to volunteering
Step 1 – Apply to volunteer
Complete the online application with all the required information.
- To continue to effectively provide essential services to our community, we are primarily looking for volunteers that can commit to a once-a-week schedule, for a minimum of 4 to 6 months.
Step 2 – Screening process
The volunteer services team will review your application and will contact the references you provide in your application. (2 references are required to proceed with an application)
Step 3 – Volunteer Match
If your skills and ability match our requirements and needs, one of the volunteer service team will contact you to discuss opportunities.
Step 4 – Orientation and Training
Your application has been approved, and you must complete a virtual orientation information session. The sessions can be completed at any time in the onboard process, at your convenience. On your first day of volunteering training will be provided by your supervising staff.
*There will be a 3-month probationary period so that both parties can ensure it is a good fit and change their minds.
The length of time it takes to process an application varies depending on the season and the volume of applications submitted.
