OK, so you want to volunteer as part of a group. Thank you – we need many volunteer groups to help us here. We’re assuming that, if you’re on this page, you meet the qualifications on the page you were just on. These are the next steps –
a) Have the coordinator of your group fill out the Group Volunteer Application.
b) Have him or her fax or mail it into us.
c) Wait for us to give your leader a call.
Due to the nature of our ministry, there are a few things to keep in mind, such as –
a) Remember, the Mission is ‘home’ to many people – treat your stay here as if you were in somebody’s home.
b) Make sure that youth are properly supervised.
c) Please stay on the main floor, unless you are accompanied by staff. If your responsibility calls for you to be on any other level, only do so in groups.
d) Ladies – please do not interact with the men outside of your Mission involvement. They don’t need any additional distractions!
e) Please don’t enter the residents’ lounge. That is their ‘personal living room’.
f) Be as natural with our residents and guests as possible.
g) Dress modestly.
The ideal-sized group is 15 or less. Groups larger than that create various logistical concerns.
Thank you for your interest in helping us out. We will contact your group leader shortly after receiving the application form.
