We're so grateful to everyone who expresses interest in volunteering. We look forward to starting this journey with you.
Here's how it works.
About volunteer training
Training will encourage volunteers to meet and learn about each other and refine their personal techniques for relating to others. We emphasize this because the individual volunteer will be part of a residential team that works exclusively with one housing unit made up of three or four residents. The success of the program will grow from the way people relate to one another: volunteer to volunteer, volunteer to resident, resident to resident and resident to the community at large.
Training will also cover conceptual and practical considerations such as mission, organization, insurance and talk about the backgrounds and needs of the residents. These topics relate closely to how volunteers will build effective relationships with one another, the residents and the larger community. Volunteers will also get ongoing mentorship from volunteer Team Leaders and regular reviews of operations with an eye to continuous learning by the organization.
