VOLUNTEER YOUR TIME
Thank you for your interest in joining SHIELD! Volunteers are vital to us and we greatly value their contributions. Currently, we are 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 out the specifics of your experience with you.
PROGRAM DATES: February 3, 2018 – April 28, 2018 (12-Week Program)
Meeting times: Every Saturday from 1 - 3 PM on the campus of UNCG
To return the completed application, please schedule an appointment or bring it along with you to the next upcoming meeting (See Calendar).
**Please return the completed volunteer application and provide a photocopy of a photo ID, such as a driver's license, passport or a social security card to be placed in your file to verify your identity.**
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 respond to you via email of acceptance into the program.
