Training & Commitment
Our Investment in You
Your Commitment to The Children We Serve
To compliment the experience and skills you bring to us, Zebra will invest professional resources in your orientation and training to equip you to be the best you can be in your volunteer role.
All volunteers will go through 30 hours of in class training followed by mentoring with a supervisor or volunteer team lead.
In turn, we ask for a minimum time commitment of two hours every week. Volunteer shifts occur on weekdays from 9:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m., with special events often scheduled on the weekend.
We appreciate all of your contributions and do have opportunities for short-term work with specific, special projects. However, for those looking to volunteer as child advocates, administration or special events volunteers, due to the investment of training, we ask a minimum of 1 year commitment.
An important factor in my motivation for continuing to volunteer at Zebra is the manner in which volunteers are accepted, encouraged and motivated. The leadership provided – the integrity, the continued focus on serving victims and their families, the vision and creativity aimed at enhancing the role of Child Advocacy, and the methods used to assign, supervise and recognize volunteers are particularly noteworthy.
