HOW DO I SIGN UP?
There are three major steps before volunteering with us:
1. Fill Out a Volunteer Application
2. Attend a Volunteer Orientation (see dates below)
3. Complete a Background Check
4. Complete Volunteer Interview
Attend a Volunteer Orientation: We ask volunteers to attend an orientation which lasts roughly a 1/2 hour. The following are upcoming orientation dates and times for the month. Click HERE for directions! You need only attend one orientation:
Thursday May 23rd @1:00pm
Friday May 31st @ 2:00pm
After attending the volunteer orientation you will be scheduled for a volunteer intake interview where we will get to know you and find out more about what you would like to do at The Family Center/La Familia.
Fill Out a Volunteer Application: You can fill out an application prior to or during the orientation. We'll then get you on a consistant volunteer schedule or set you up with a project.
Complete a Background Check: Unfortunately we do not have the funds at this time to cover volunteer processing fees, so we ask that volunteers contribute $25 to cover the cost of a background check and t-shirt uniform. If you are volunteering through a class, we have a reduced student fee of $10 for the background check if you bring in a signed waiver from your teacher. We process the background checks with the information provided on the volunteer application, so please be sure to be thorough. Our volunteer's information and files are confidential.
