Q: What do volunteers at HSWC get to do?
A: Checkout some of the many roles our volunteers can get involved with below!
Q: Can we arrange a day to volunteer with our group?
A: Unfortunately, due to the amount of time needed to process and train new volunteers, one-time/ short-term volunteer opportunities are not available at HSWC.
Q: Can we arrange an on-going project/partnership for our group to volunteer at HSWC?
A: Yes! However please keep in mind a few points:

All applicants will need to submit the Required Paperwork (found above) and the Volunteer Contribution (see FAQ on this above for more information),
Additional members (adults or minors) can join the program and group on a “rolling” basis, so long as they are able to meet the two points above.
