TRAININGS - duties can include: set-up & break down (includes food table setup/breakdown), registration (and/or data entry prior to/after training), picking up food/beverages. Tasks can vary from training to training. Note: Volunteers may attend the training as a participant when working as a volunteer for that training -- ask for more information.
AUXILIARY - You can assist by joining our work groups; supporting speakers and/or speaking at schools, churches, communities. Delivering Ask4Help Cards and other materials and by helping to fund-raise for the cause or by joining a special event committee to help us with event planning and logistics.
