All individual volunteers will be asked to complete a Volunteer Orientation Session. This is a 1 to 2 hour group session that covers Turning Point policies and procedures. During this session, a tour of the shelter will be given, and this will be an excellent time to discuss any questions about Turning Point’s Volunteer Program. Prior to the session, Turning Point asks that individual volunteers undergo a BCI (background check) at their own expense. Turning Point will reimburse the cost of the BCI check after the volunteer has completed 20 hours of volunteering within 6 months of the receipt of the completed check.
