VOLUNTEER TRAINING and ORIENTATION offer important information about the agency, available resources and best ways of making a difference in the lives of many vulnerable seniors we assist. Volunteer Tutors are of amazing value and resource to the vulnerable seniors and survivors of torture we serve and prepare for US naturalization. Tirelessly and with patience, volunteers find time to meet with their senior students regularly, to help them learn and believe in their abilities, as seniors prepare for a very challenging Naturalization test. To be well prepared, we offer Volunteer Training both to the newly enrolled volunteers and those with much experience.
We request that all volunteers attend an initial training session. If you have never been to a formalized training, especially if you started volunteering prior to April, 2014, you are encouraged to attend. We have added new material to our program and tutor manual, plus volunteer ID badges.
