Volunteer Application

Thank you for supporting the work of The Avery Center. We rely on volunteers and interns to walk alongside survivors and engage our community in a variety of ways. We value YOU and we value your time.

PLEASE NOTE: Our volunteer opportunities have been limited due to safety restrictions related to COVID-19. You are still welcome to go through the volunteer application and onboarding process, but don't be discouraged if you don't hear from us right away with volunteer opportunities. We will be in touch as soon as engagement opportunities are available.

A self-paid background check is required for all volunteers and interns age 18 and above. By covering this cost, you are supporting the work we are doing. To request a copy of your completed background check report, contact us with your name and order confirmation number and a copy will be sent to you.

Volunteer and Intern Applicant Requirements:

  • Complete a background check
    If you've completed a background check in the past 12 months, you can send a copy to us at volunteer@theaverycenter.org
  • Read and sign the Confidentiality Agreement and Photo Release Form
  • Complete our online training (we'll give you access to our training portal once your application and background check are both received)
  • Submit a record of your volunteer time (including time spent on paperwork, emails, and training!) through our time tracking form.

If you would like to apply for a scholarship for the background check, please contact us at volunteer@theaverycenter.org. We do not want the cost to be a barrier for volunteers who can’t pay.
