Junior Volunteers

Children can be taught at a young age to give back to their community through service to others, and therefore, ROOF offers volunteer opportunities to children at any age, as long as they can effectively participate in a meaningful volunteer opportunity.  Children under the age of 16 must be accompanied by a parent or other responsible adult at all times while volunteering at ROOF.  With written authorization from their parents or guardians, children 16 years and older can participate as volunteers with ROOF under the supervision of ROOF staff members. 


ROOF Volunteer Orientation Training:  

The ROOF Volunteer Handbook is distributed during New Volunteer Orientation.  This introductory training session provides new volunteers with an introduction to ROOF. It includes an overview of the organization, a description of volunteer opportunities and a review of volunteer guidelines.
