Step 1: Become a member
Review the Membership Fees to determine your category.You can contact the office to discuss job description(s) requirements and the number of volunteer placement(s) you are seeking. Fill out the Agency Membership Form, (PDF Version)
Step 2: Request Volunteers
Complete the downloadable Volunteer Request Form, (PDF Version) for each position or event to be promoted. REMEMBER: it is important to make your volunteer recruitment plans well in advance of your needs. We’ll need at least two weeks to try to properly recruit volunteers for you.
Step 3: Welcome and acknowledge your referrals
When volunteers are referred to you from our office they will bring you a referral form, so that you are aware they were referred from our office. We will also send a regular report of the volunteers who have been referred to you. For special events, we keep a sign-up list in our office and regularly forward you these contacts. It is important to make some type of contact soon after these names are forwarded to you – even if it’s just to let them know how long it will take you to get back to them!
