Volunteer Orientation Information

Thank you for your interest in volunteering

Your first step to volunteering with our program is to submit an application for a reservation at our next orientation. Seating for attendance at the orientation is limited. All applications received during the specified time frame will be reviewed.

Please do not submit an application unless you are able to start volunteering now, can commit to 100 hours of service over a six-to-seven month period, and are sure you can attend the scheduled orientation. Students interested in starting their service in the fall should plan to apply for a future orientation later this year.

Applications are currently being accepted for the May, 2015 orientation
