Volunteer process

  1. Review our current available volunteer positions.

  2. Plan to attend a Volunteer Information Session to learn more about the IRC SLC. Info sessions fill up quickly, but please email [email protected] to get an auto response. The auto response will contain a link to view dates and times for the info session, which are scheduled two months out. Sign up for the one that fits your schedule best.

  3. After you’ve attended a volunteer information session, we’ll send you a volunteer application to complete.

  4. The Volunteer Coordinator will contact you regarding potential volunteer opportunities as they become available and may schedule a phone or in-person interview. Please note that due to increased interest from passionate community members like yourself, do expect a wait of 3-6 months to get placed with a specific volunteer position.

  5. After attending a Volunteer Information Session you will be invited to complete a volunteer application.

  6. You're ready to get started! Depending on your role, you'll either receive further training from your in-office department or wait to be matched with a family to tutor and/or mentor.
