Program Volunteer Opportunities

To volunteer in our programs, state licensing requires you to complete a fingerprint clearance certification and TB test. Therefore, we recommend that only volunteers interested in a long-term, regular volunteer commitment of six months or more apply. Volunteers must be 18 years of age or older. Please see events and office work for opportunities that do not require rigorous clearances.

Volunteers in our special education school  must have previous experience working with individuals who are multi-disabled. Volunteer hours are 9 a.m. to 2 p.m., Monday-Friday. A four-hour minimum shift is required.
