VOLUNTEER YOUR TIME
Thank you for your interest in joining SHIELD! Volunteers are vital to us and we greatly value their contributions. We are actively seeking volunteers to join our group.
The SHIELD Mentor Program welcomes volunteers from the entire community. Volunteers will have an opportunity to learn non-profit management principles and will work directly with the Executive Director. It's a great way to feel good about yourself, connect with your community, and help others. The mentoring program uses volunteers to support, guide, and be a trusted friend to a young person for a period of at least one year. There are many ways to volunteer, depending on your time, interests, and abilities. We have numerous volunteer opportunities ranging from mentoring to helping at special events. Volunteer Opportunities are individually tailored to meet each volunteer’s needs, talents, and interests. We will work with you to figure out the specifics of your experience.
Please schedule an appointment to learn more about us.
**A background check will be required to verify your identity. Please provide a photocopy of a photo ID, such as a driver's license, passport or a social security card.**
Note: Submitting an application does not guarantee being selected. Part of the process of being selected is actively completing orientation and training. If an applicant is not selected, it is based on the availability of volunteer mentors in the program. SHIELD staff will review the volunteer applications and will respond to you over email regarding the status of your application.
