Work Session Volunteer Registration

Wondering which project to select?

Thinking of volunteering?
Is it your first time?
Wondering what is involved?
Not certain if you have the right skills?
Need help filling in the forms?
Need a knowledgeable person to talk to?


We understand how difficult it is to try something new and how important it is to have answers before you commit to being a volunteer. The Friends have knowledgeable, experienced volunteers who will answer your questions and address your concerns. These seasoned volunteers can help you through the registration process; explain how to fill out forms and which forms are needed; help you decide which project best fits your skills. Just send us an e-mail and we will assist. If you wish to speak with us directly, please include your phone number and the best time to call. We will be happy to discuss any part of the volunteer program as we’ve seen and done a lot and are eager to share our experiences. Send one of us an e-mail and you will have a response the same day.
