Do I have to register before I can find a volunteer opportunity?

If you are a court-referred volunteer, yes, you must register in person. Click here to find out how.

All other volunteers do NOT have to register before browsing the volunteer opportunities. You can click here and enter your city to see all the opportunities.

Where is information about the youth program?

You can find all the information for the youth programs under "Join A Community" and by clicking here

Why is my date of birth required?

Many of the volunteer opportunities require confirmation whether or not you are a minor. This setting will ensure that you can sing up for youth or adult opportunities and it will adjust automatically once a minor reaches 18. The date is only stored in the system and not shared publically.    

Why is the registration form so long?

If you are in a hurry, you only need to fill out the required fields indicated with a red star. You will get a username and password and you can always log back in and updated your Personal Information at any point in the future when you have more time.
