New Volunteer Orientation Training


New volunteers are required to either attend an in-person orientation, or to watch the online orientation video, read the volunteer handbook, and take and pass an assessment test.

If you choose the online orientation a short in-person tour will be given the first time you volunteer.


Important notes:

  • All volunteers must complete a Volunteer Application before taking the assessment below.
  • Volunteers who are under 16 years old must complete orientation online with a parent or guardian.
  • If you have court ordered community service please email a copy of the court order / reason for the community service prior to completing orientation online.

To complete volunteer orientation online, please watch the video, read the Volunteer Handbook, and then take the assessment that follows. Once you pass the assessment, our volunteer coordinator will email you.
