Vested Volunteers and Interns

Vested Volunteers are passionate about serving in a specific program area such as mentoring, art therapy, Search + Rescue, or youth programs. Vested Volunteers have the necessary skills for the role, can commit to regular, ongoing service, and are willing to attend additional training as needed.

Interns support Mission programs while fulfilling academic or vocational prerequisites. (Please note, that Mission internships are unpaid.)
