How to Apply
You can apply to volunteer using our online application. You will be asked to create a username and password for our volunteer system at the start of the process. We are actively training new volunteers so this is a great time to apply. If you are ready to start right away please mention that in your application.
Please be aware that our minimum volunteer age is 18 years old. At this time we are focused on on-boarding volunteers who will be available for at least 6 months and able to do an average of at least one shift per week (3 hours). Our volunteer shifts are self scheduled so you schedule shifts that work for you.
New volunteers are being brought in with an orientation at The Compass, followed by role specific training on your first shift. The length of the wait is a function of available positions, your availability, and your experience/skills. Adding more detail to your application will help us match you to a role.
