  • All volunteers must fill out an application form (click here for our online form), and attend an interview, orientation, and training.
  • Some volunteer positions are short term (special events, Shades of Fun campaigns, etc). Other positions ask for a regular weekly or monthly commitment for a minimum of six months.
