You may download the pdf application or submit an online application - see the links below. Please submit your application online, over email, or through the mail prior to your date of orientation, or bring it along with you to your orientation session.

Orientation will take place in the Journey's End offices at 2495 Main Street in Suite 317. Please park in the rear lot on Halbert Street. Come in the entrance on Halbert street (you can access this by turning down Jewett or Rodney). Once you enter, take the elevator to the third floor and go down the hall to your left. RESERVATIONS ARE REQUIRED!

Please arrive promptly as the sessions start on time. Orientations take approximately 1.5 hours with Q & A (optional) to follow. Please bring your completed application, your drivers license/photo ID, and your current car insurance card (we will need to make a photocopy of it). All volunteers must attend the regularly scheduled volunteer orientation.

When the orientation/background procedure is complete, each volunteer will be notified and they will have the opportunity to select from various volunteer assignments. Once you begin volunteering you become a part of our large Journey's End family, which means you will be a crucial and dynamic part of helping our newest neighbors succeed in their dreams and endeavors. We have high expectations and quality support for our volunteers because of the many important tasks they fulfill, both for our clients and our agency. Thank you in advance for considering contributing your time and talent. We couldn't do it without you!

If you have what it takes to be a Journey's End volunteer, please select from any of the orientation dates listed here, or call or email for more information or to make your reservation. Our Volunteer Manager, Bryana DiFonzo, can be reached at volunteer@jersbuffalo.org.
