Volunteer Opportunities

GETTING STARTED

Potential volunteers participate in an interview with the Volunteer Services Coordinator and are given a tour of the home. After the screening process is complete, the volunteer is matched with the activity that reflects their interests, strengths, and desires.

 

PLACEMENT & TRAINING

Let us know what you'd love to do. Time, availability, current openings, and the volunteer's interests are key factors in determining a suitable and beneficial placement. Specific training & orientation is conducted by staff members. Police checks and TB tests are required.

Vision '74 offers many different types of volunteer opportunities, see below what type of placement would be right for you:
