  • To assist individuals at a time when they may be feeling desperate, frustrated and fearful?
  • To meet and work with volunteers who value all people, regardless of their situation in life?

Please note that attendance at all training classes is essential and though we try to be accommodating, make-up classes for absences may be very difficult to arrange. Speak with your Program Coordinator before the onset of training if you believe you are unable to attend any of the training sessions. Some volunteer training programs are offered on an ongoing basis, however, the majority of training is scheduled four times a year. You may click on a specific training session for access to the class schedule dates and more specific information.
