* Note: If you would like to volunteer at an agency not listed, contact our office for approval.
- Contact the site and speak with the site director or volunteer coordinator to find out what you need to do to begin your service hours. Some sites will ask you to complete a site application, criminal background check or orientation program, and confirm when you can begin.
