Next Steps for Applicants After Submitting an Application:
Someone from the volunteer coordination department will contact you with your volunteer eligibility once:
- We receive responses from your references
- We receive your background check results
- You attend orientation: IEO is required for all volunteers, and SEO is additionally required for Good Neighbor Teams & Friendship Partners
If eligible to volunteer, the volunteer coordination department will then connect you to an opportunity.
After attending all required orientations, someone from the volunteer coordination department will contact you (generally within the next two weeks) to clarify your volunteer opportunity interest.
*You are required to attend the volunteer orientation related to your chosen volunteer opportunity before engaging in that opportunity.*
You can attend a required volunteer orientation at any point in the application process - you could attend before starting the application process, in the middle of the process, or after you finish the process. Attending an orientation does not lock you in as a volunteer. You are welcome to attend as a way to help you learn if you wish to volunteer with WRD. However, attending a volunteer orientation is required before engaging in a WRD volunteer opportunity.
Does my child need to apply to volunteer with WRD?

Is there an age limit on volunteering?
There is no age limit to volunteering. However, those under the age of 16 must always be accompanied by an official WRD volunteer over the age of 16 when serving.
