After Submitting Your Pre-Application Screening Form
You can expect to be contacted by Volunteer Services within the next two weeks. If approved, our department will send you the full application to complete as well as instructions on how to send it back to us. Next, you will be contacted by a Human Resources Assistant to schedule an interview. During the interview, we will learn about your interests, activities, previous volunteer experiences, your preference for an assignment and availability.
