**Important Info for Volunteers
- Mandatory Training: All new and returning volunteers are required to attend mandatory training – please refer to job descriptions for program-specific spring training dates.
- Mandatory Vulnerable Sector Checks: All volunteers over 18 years of age must provide a Vulnerable Sector Check (PVSC) less than a year old. To apply for a PVSC you must bring two pieces of government identification to the police station. If you are not a resident of Niagara, but have a temporary Niagara address, you must also bring with you proof of current local address. A volunteer PVSC costs $15. For more information on applying for a PVSC, click here. Please note, it usually takes weeks for a vulnerable sector check to be processed, so don’t wait!
“The heart of a volunteer is not measured in size, but by the depth of the commitment to make a difference in the lives of others.” – DeAnn Hollis
