Individual Volunteering Opportunities
Alexandra House has a team of dedicated volunteers working in virtually every program. For prospective volunteers interested in working directly with clients as advocates or childcare providers, we offer a 40-hour training program that prepares individuals for the challenges of direct-service volunteering. For prospective volunteers interested in working behind the scenes in our kitchen or facility, we provide a quick orientation that allows volunteers to make a difference without extensive training. All individual volunteer opportunities require a completed volunteer application and a personal interview. For more information, please contact or 763-795-5458.
The next 40-hour training will be held March 9 - April 1, 2015. A MANDATORY Information Session will be held Monday, February 23, 2015 from 5:30-7:00 pm.
The training is four (4) weeks in length with meetings every Monday and Wednesday from 5:30 pm - 9:00 pm. Two Saturdays (March 14 & 28) from 9:00 am - 4:30 pm are required. For more information contact, Ashley Bolstad at 763-795-5458. Please complete the Individual Volunteer Application prior to attending the information session.
