The first step is to email The Redwoods Program and Volunteer Department at firstname.lastname@example.org. When you contact our office, our staff will assist you in signing up for one of our volunteer orientations. You must attend a volunteer orientation in order to volunteer at The Redwoods. Once you have attended the orientation, you then fill out a volunteer application, which will be provided, and you will be able to sign up for specific volunteer opportunities at The Redwoods
The Redwoods receives the support of hundreds of students throughout the year, and, as a vibrant part of our intergenerational programming, we welcome the participation of younger volunteers on our campus.
Because so many students come to us to fulfill their community service requirements for school, we ask that students schedule their volunteerism with us well in advance of the deadline for the completion of their volunteer hours. Unfortunately, when we have a number of student volunteers coming to us at one time, we are often unable to schedule everyone who would like to volunteer with us in time to meet deadlines for submitting verification of community service hours.
Volunteers of all ages are welcome; but volunteers ages 12 and under are required to have at least one parent accompanying them when volunteering at The Redwoods. Over the years, we have had many families volunteer together, and it often results in some of the most meaningful experiences and relationships between the residents and volunteers on our campus.
