(1) Basic Orientation (BO) is required (along with a background check)
for all Volunteers as part of our agreement with our insurance carrier.
(2) Team Training is also required for the service team(s) you decide to
work on. At the moment we are well staffed for Lock Box (LB), Helping
Hands (HH), and Friendly Contact (FC). Since much of what we do is
provide rides for doctors and errands as part of Going My Way (GMW)
we ALWAYS need more trained drivers.
(3) Class Schedule -- Here's the schedule for BO and GMW training.
There will be more / others later in the year.

NOTE: Gmail, Outlook, Live or Hotmail email address rquired
The Senior Village has had ongoing problems with Volunteers who have
other email providers such as WBHSI, Centurylink, Q, etc. These providers
incorrectly classify Village communications as spam and prevent them from
getting to our Volunteers. More importantly, the Village could eventually be
classified as a spammer and be cut off. We cannot allow that to happen.
