Welcome to our new Certified Light House Volunteer process! This process is open to adults 18 yrs or older and is required for all volunteers who would like to sign-up for our on-site volunteer opportunities.
STEP 1: Watch Our Volunteer Orientation Video
Steps to Become a Certified Light House Volunteer
STEP 1: Watch our Volunteer Orientation Video (above)
STEP 2: Complete our Volunteer Application
STEP 3: Complete a Background Check
*If you have already completed a background check for other reasons, please contact email@example.com.
Once the above steps are complete you will receive a welcome email from Our Volunteer Information Center (VIC) inviting you to begin scheduling your shifts!
Before starting this process, please keep in mind the following:
- You must complete all steps and be approved before signing up for a volunteer shift.
- We do not accept court referred volunteers.
- If you are volunteering with a group, only the group leader is required to complete our Certified Light House Volunteer process but we encourage others to watch our Volunteer Orientation Video.
- For the safety of our shelter staff, clients, and our volunteers, on-site volunteer positions require a background check.
- You must be 18 years or older to fill out our volunteer application, become a Certified Light House Volunteer, sign-up for shifts, and volunteer as an individual on-site. Youth volunteers ages 11-17 who would like to volunteer on-site must at all times be accompanied by an adult who has completed our Certified Light House Volunteer process.
- Making UNbagged lunches or holding food donation drives do not require attending an orientation or filling out a volunteer application, however they do require steps to participate as outlines on the volunteer page.
