Volunteer Program

Misson

Volunteers play an important role in supporting the work and mission of OSD. They assist with academic programs, recreation, fundraising, campus activities, and program support. Volunteers are recruited, trained, and supervised by the Outreach Program.

All potential volunteers must fill out the volunteer application and criminal history check. This must be done before the person can volunteer on campus.  Once the criminal check is verified as clear, the search for placement of the volunteer in one of the specified departments begins.  Once the volunteer is placed in a department, the volunteer and supervisor must notify the volunteer coordinator as soon as the volunteer work begins. The volunteer must attend one of the volunteer orientations.  The volunteer must complete the necessary paperwork distributed by the volunteer coordinator at orientation.  Volunteers working with students (tutoring, academic assistance, counseling, etc.) are required to have proficient ASL skills.
