Volunteers are an essential part of the operation of the Family Resource Center. Our ability to provide services to the community is dependent upon the commitment and support of our volunteer staff. Volunteers contribute time, personal resources, special skills, and continue to be a motivating force in the continuation of this program.
The first step toward becoming a volunteer is to complete and send in the Volunteer Application Form. After we receive the form, we’ll talk by phone, set up an interview, and continue through the process.
If you would like to become a volunteer, please complete the Volunteer Application Form and fax, mail, or email it (see form). For more information, call 276-625-0219 and ask for the Volunteer Coordinator. Be sure to leave a message with your contact information.
Volunteers will receive various levels of training, depending upon the type of volunteer work chosen.
The Family Resource Center welcomes motivated, independent, and reliable interns. Interns will gain experience with many agency functions, including: hot-line and shelter coverage, advocacy and counseling, prevention education, event planning, database entry, program outreach, fundraising activities, and administrative duties.
If you would like to apply please submit a brief cover letter and a completed FRC Internship Application Form. Your information should clearly specify when your internship will begin and end, the number of internship hours per week, the class or degree you are completing and information regarding the class requirements for your internship. We recommend that you begin the internship application process 4 months in advance to ensure the best placement.
Interns are required to complete the agency’s 40 hour Training Program. The training includes two days of classes which are scheduled at least quarterly. Please plan your schedule accordingly. Note: for most programs, the training hours do count toward the total number of hours required. Be sure to check with your program or professor to confirm this.
