ACSKC’s insurance covers volunteers who are 16 years of age and above. While children under 16 are not able to volunteer in our typical volunteer duties, we have a variety of community outreach programs and at-home projects available!
Volunteers are required to commit to a minimum of 8 hours per month for a period of 3 months. Due to the length of time it takes to become a fully trained volunteer and the number of staff resources used to train, we want to make sure we are training volunteers who are committed to volunteering at ACSKC long-term. Volunteers are more than welcome to serve more than 8 hours per month if they choose to do so. We also understand that volunteers are not always able to meet the monthly hour requirement, due to work or family obligations, emergencies, injuries, or other similar obligations. If you will not be able to meet the required minimum of 8 hours of service in a given month, please email the Volunteer Coordinator.
Once a volunteer application has been submitted, the volunteer team will review the information provided and reach out to you regarding next steps. The email will outline the details of how to sign up for volunteer orientation. Once a volunteer has completed orientation and submitted a signed Volunteer Release of Liability, then the volunteer can begin donating their time to ACSKC.
