Individual Volunteers

As an individual volunteer, orientation is an important part of the volunteer process at CHRIS Kids. Our goal is to ensure you understand specifically what your role and expectations are as an individual or volunteer. Orientation is scheduled AFTER your project date, time, activity and goals are reviewed and confirmed. Once these details are final, you and or your group are ready for Orientation! The Orientation process takes approximately an hour and reviews our history, mission, ethics, program guidelines and does an overview of trauma informed care. Orientation can be done at your business, in a group or individually at our main office.
