Becoming a Volunteer:
STEP 1: ATTEND A VOLUNTEER ORIENTATION (required)
Learn about Vera’s history and all of our different programs and services and meet other volunteers that you will be working with. Our Steering committee members who lead these orientations can help you answer all of your ‘what’s next?’ questions to get you on the right path. You will also need to fill out a volunteer application, which can be found here!
Orientations are held at Vera on the second Thursday of the month from 6-7pm, and the second Saturday from 4-5pm. Times are subject to change, so please check the website or call to confirm. Orientations take place in our conference room – enter the building through our front entrance on Warren & Republican Ave. No registration necessary – just show up!
Email firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions!
STEP 2: SIGN UP
You can sign up for shows & opportunities by registering on our volunteer sign up site, Shiftboard, after your orientation. You will get a demonstration that shows how to navigate the site. You will also be added to a volunteer google group that will send you info about upcoming shows, festivals, meetings, community events, and more!
STEP 3: VOLUNTEER
All of our volunteer shifts are available on Shiftboard. Once your account is approved, you can start signing up + volunteering
(We are currently restructuring our ability to provide & internal policy regarding court-ordered community service so we are unable to offer hours at this time. Our current timeline is to have the program back and running in the fall. We can still sign off on school-ordered service hours)
STEP 4: BECOME A MEMBER (BONUS)
By pledging 24 hours of volunteer work and filling out an application, you can becoming a card carrying member of Vera!
