Volunteer Opportunities

We are no longer accepting applications for Easter.

Please use the form below to submit your application and background check so you are able to volunteer for future opportunities.

Due to current public health concerns, volunteers could be exposed to or expose others to COVID-19 while performing volunteer duties and must follow protective measures implemented by the Service and the Center for Disease Control (CDC). With that said, we do require masks and physical distancing while volunteering.
