Volunteer FAQs

When is the next volunteer orientation?

Volunteer orientations are held on a Wednesday in the middle of each month. In an effort to accommodate all schedules, we offer two orientation options. One session is held at noon, and another session is held at 6pm. After completing your volunteer application, you will receive an email with the next available orientation date. One week before the orientation, you will be emailed the Zoom links.
