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 one hour with Q & A (optional) to follow. Please bring your completed application and drivers license/photo ID to the volunteer orientation (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!
