A decision will be based on your interests, availability, ability to perform the tasks required, available opportunities, and successful completion of our volunteer engagement intake/screening process. Some volunteer roles require more screening, and others less. It depends on what you’re interested in doing. Completing a volunteer application form does not guarantee you a volunteer role.
Many Foundation volunteer opportunities do not require that you have any previous experience, unless otherwise indicated.
It really depends on you, and the role you have been assigned. Think about how much time you want to devote to your volunteer activities, and what will be manageable. You can always start off with a few hours here and there, then build towards more hours and responsibility.
Definitely! The more the merrier. We require all volunteers to complete the volunteer application form. If you’d like to volunteer together for the same event or activity, please be sure to let us know, so we can place you as a group. We will try our best to accommodate these requests, but can’t always guarantee this due to limited availability.
