We recruited for Ambassadors, Office Assistants and Unit Volunteers throughout the fall and have reached program capacity at this time. We will be reassessing our needs and openings as we enter the new year.

While you are welcome to submit you volunteer application at any time, we will not be contacting candidates until we have determined our recruitment focus for winter 2017. When we review applicants at that time it will be with an eye towards those needs identified.

We will update our website with programming details as soon as they are available.

In the meantime please enjoy a healthy, happy holiday season!
