Do I need any training?

Some volunteer roles require training; some do not. You can easily accomplish many tasks without any training, as we have well-documented processes.  These tasks are short (1-2 hours) and well suited for youth desiring community service hours or busy individuals with limited time for volunteering.

  • Pre-setup Saturday morning:stage beds, linens, lamps upstairs prior to actual setup on Sunday
  • Set up Sunday morning:move desks from classrooms, setup beds, prep kitchen and bath areas
  • Supplies and grocery shopping:can happen any time before guests arrive on Sunday at 1:30pm

Hosting roles which directly interface with our guests, such as dinners, breakfasts, and overnight, require a basic RAIHN training course. This training is provided monthly by the RAIHN staff.
