We offer flexible schedules for volunteers. Staff reserves the right to set a minimum/maximum number of hours available for certain volunteer projects, but we will work with individuals to best address their needs.

Once you have been approved as a Volunteer, you will be required to attend an orientation prior to joining our staff.
