Volunteers arrive at 4:15pm for brief overview of the evening. First-time volunteers must arrive at 4:15 to receive important information. Returning volunteers must arrive before 4:30pm in order to serve guests. 
Volunteers are assigned a specific duty or area of the building where they will serve for the evening. Duties include welcoming guests, serving coffee, general cleaning, keeping the hallway clear, and other duties as they arise. If you have a special way you'd like to share during your time volunteering, please let us know - for example: creating art, offering live music, performing magic tricks - the possibilities are endless! 
Guests enter at 4:30pm. 
Volunteers greet guests and offer conversation until transportation for the guests arrive (between 5:15-5:30pm). 
By 6pm all guests have departed. Volunteers help clean and ready the space for the next day. 

A brief reflection time is offered at the end to share your experience.

Volunteers are an important piece of our nightly process. We depend on volunteers to attend and complete shifts. If you sign up but are unable to attend your volunteer shift, please cancel your registration as soon as possible to make room for waitlisted volunteers.
