Get started!

Relationships are important! We ask volunteers to make a six-month commitment for experiences in our programs. But before you commit:

Taste!  Explore what is right for you with a tour, conversation, and a 30-minute sample experience.

Test!  Volunteer for several sessions.

Engage!  We provide training and orientation so you feel prepared and know what to expect. All volunteers who work with children and teens must complete an application and undergo a background check prior to volunteering.
