Requirements for volunteers

A number of requirements are in place to ensure a safe and successful volunteer experience.

Vaccine requirements

Seasonal flu vaccine — May be required for some areas and roles.

Medical requirements

Time commitment and attendance

Volunteers are generally expected to commit to one 3-4 hour shift weekly, on a consistent day and time for a minimum of six months to one year. Please ensure you are able to reliably fulfill this commitment.
