Volunteers can take part in any number of the training sessions being offered; however, those looking to become a CERTIFIED VOLUNTEER must complete at least 6 courses provided, two of which are mandatory (Customer Service & Being a Difference Maker and Disability Awareness).


Upon completion of a course, each volunteer will receive a certificate. After completing at least 6 courses, each volunteer will receive a Certified Volunteer Certificate and Vest. We encourage our Certified Volunteers to sport these vests around town, as well as wear them in each volunteer position.


The volunteer development program is a great way to build your skill set and enhance your resume. You will receive thorough training from professional coaches, allowing you to choose from a wider range of available volunteer positions. In addition to gaining invaluable knowledge and experience, these sessions could also help you save someone's life in an emergency.

Additional courses will be added soon - please check our website regularly for updates!
