Volunteers are an integral part of our operations and help to ensure our continued success. Volunteers must be at least 16 years of age. Applicants under the age of 18 are required to have a parent/guardian signature. Depending on the activity or activities you choose, one of our volunteer coordinators will follow up with you to conduct a phone interview. You will asked to complete an application and attend a brief orientation. We want to ensure that you have a safe, comfortable experience, so additional training may be provided.
