Volunteers are screened, which includes filling out an application. This application will be presented to the volunteer at the time of screening. The volunteer is then matched to a volunteer role that supports their volunteer interests. Volunteers, including student volunteers, must meet with the Manager of Community Development and Volunteer Services prior to volunteering.
Volunteer positions within the organization range from working directly with a person to leading an activity, supporting a fundraising event, employment mentoring position and/or supporting a special event as an assistant.
