Review our volunteer positions and select your top three choices. Make sure to note EXACT desired titles offered.
Complete a volunteer application. Your application will be reviewed and you will be contacted if your interests, availability, and skills match current openings. **Please note we receive a high volume of applications and only top candidates are contacted.**
If you are contacted for an interview, you may be asked to follow additional steps. Upon completion of a successful interview, we will run references. To protect clients, we require a background check for all volunteers. We ask that you make a minimum contribution of $50 to offset the high cost of a background check. Currently, 92% of our funding goes directly to our clients, and your help to cover this cost allows us to continue providing the best service possible. The background check process and confirmation from IRC, may take 1-2 weeks.
Once cleared, you will be required to attend an orientation and training.
