Volunteer With Us
To become a volunteer, you will need to complete an application as well as the required background checks and health assessment. We will also set up a time to meet with you to provide information on our facilities and to discuss your volunteer goals. We want to make sure you are comfortable and competent in your duties before beginning services. Upon completion of orientation, new volunteers may shadow an experienced volunteer until confident to perform the duty on their own.
As a volunteer, you will have flexibility with your schedule and will be able to select opportunities that would best fit your interests and talents. If you are interested in speaking with someone from Volunteer Services regarding the volunteer program or available opportunities, please call Renae at (712) 722-8296.
