  4. Complete the training course for that opportunity.

Current Ways To Volunteer

1. Advocate for CLTS – participate as a volunteer in your community and advocate for CLTS.

2. Special Events Volunteers staff a table or help with a one-time event.  Events are seasonal mainly in the Fall, Spring and Early Summer. Event volunteers give time to a specific event and are more generalist – helping in many different ways. Volunteers give time more hours over a short time frame – such as a few months or even days vs. a year. Volunteers need to be commitment to the duration of the event.

3. Special Situation Volunteers are on-call volunteers that can help with a variety of activities depending on their skills. Situation volunteers will be activate as needed and may have an intense volunteer experience for a shorter term.


Volunteers with CLTS require different amount of training and number of hours. If you have a few hours a week to only one day every few months, we have opportunities for you.
