COVID-19 Safety Policies
As of July 2021, we are requiring that all volunteers be fully vaccinated against COVID-19 prior to volunteering on-site. Masks must be worn at all times, regardless of vaccination status. Thank you for helping us keep our youth safe! Questions or concerns? Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Interested in Volunteering?
Volunteer Age Information: For volunteers interacting directly with youth, individuals must be 25 or older. Youth volunteers (ages 16-24) may join us on a limited basis to help with special events or peak service seasons like the holidays.
Time Commitment: While we welcome single day volunteers, we request at least a six month commitment to a regular schedule.
Background Checks: We also ask that, if possible, volunteers donate $25 to cover the cost of processing the background check.
Onboarding: Want to get started? Create your Thinkific volunteer onboarding account here. Once you create your account, you can follow the course to complete your onboarding process.
Groups: If you are visiting New Orleans and would to have your group volunteer, please email us at volunteerNOLA@covenanthouse.org to make arrangements. In most cases, we are unable to accommodate groups larger than 20 people. If you are a local group, let’s chat!
We love our volunteers, and are always open to new ideas! For any questions related to volunteering, email volunteerNOLA@covenanthouse.org.
Please note that we are unable to validate court mandated volunteer hours.
