To get started:

Step 1: Create an account in our volunteer portal. (This is where you’ll sign up for volunteer shifts, check your schedule, and log your hours, so I recommend bookmarking the link.)

Step 2: Sign up for orientation through the portal. To find the next scheduled New Volunteer Orientation, go to the “Opportunities” tab in the portal and choose the one that best suits your schedule.

Step 3: Sign up for shifts! Once you complete orientation, all available volunteer opportunities will populate in your volunteer profile and you can start signing up. Welcome to the DWC family!

If you have any questions about this process, navigating the volunteer portal, shift accommodations, or anything else, please don’t hesitate to reach out!
