What should I do in order to volunteer?
Once you and a staff member have identified an opportunity that matches your desire to serve, you'll be asked to schedule an interview and complete an application form. If the assignment involves working with clients, personnel files, case records, or other sensitive organizational information you will also be required to have a criminal background check. If the assignment involves driving, you will be asked to provide proof of auto insurance and consent to a motor vehicle driving record check.
What if there aren’t any volunteer opportunities in my community?
