Become a Volunteer

Application, Screening, and Training

  • Attend an Orientation

Our orientations provide prospective volunteers with information about our organization, our current volunteer opportunities, and a walkthrough of the application process. Visit our events page for a list of upcoming orientation dates and email to RSVP. Note: we require volunteers to attend one orientation before submitting an application and registering for training.

  • Submit an Application

After attending an orientation, click here to fill out the Volunteer Application with your availability and areas of interest.

  • Application Review

LCNV staff review applications to determine best placement based on areas of need and volunteers’ interests and availability. Individuals applying for roles which demand certain levels of commitment or specific expertise, such as classroom teachers, may be asked to participate in an interview with Program staff prior to proceeding further.

  • Complete Training

Prospective LCNV instructors are invited to attend required trainings to familiarize themselves with the skills and resources necessary for working with our students. LCNV requires volunteers attending these trainings to pay a one-time fee of $50, which contributes to the cost of materials and ongoing training opportunities.

  • Volunteer Placement

Upon successfully completing training, LCNV staff will invite the prospective volunteer to serve. Due to variables such as availability, need, and geography, we cannot predict volunteer activity will commence immediately. If asked to wait, LCNV staff will propose interim service opportunities.
