Our New Volunteer Orientation is held every 2nd and 4th Thursday of the month at the Camp Foster Office Bldg 5674.
Volunteers can change the office they are associated with through their Volunteer Connection account if necessary. Volunteers under the age of 18 will be registered as a Youth in Volunteer Connection and will not be required to complete a background check.
