Email [email protected] to get the dates and times for future information sessions. At the information session, you will learn more about what the IRC does in the Dallas area and how you can get involved.
At the info session, we’ll provide you with the link to the volunteer application. Review our current available volunteer positions and submit your application online.
The Volunteer Coordinator will review your application and may schedule a phone or in-person interview.
Once the interview is conducted, successful applicants will need to complete the necessary background checks*. To protect our clients, we require background checks for all our volunteers. We ask volunteers to make a $45 donation to help offset the cost. This process can take 1-2 weeks.
Once cleared, you will receive further training for your specific volunteer assignment and will begin helping people rebuild their lives in Dallas.
Additional things to note
*You must be 18 years or older to volunteer and complete a background check. Children are able to volunteer alongside parents in our family mentor program.
Volunteer positions require a consistent amount of hours per week. If this is not feasible for you, please email us about our on-call opportunities.
