Volunteer

Becoming a volunteer/intern at the ACCAC

We have several needs for volunteers and interns, and are flexible in the hours and schedule of work for volunteers. We welcome people who can commit to certain hours each week, and we also welcome people who can be available on an as needed basis, once they are fully oriented to the agency.

All volunteers/interns must complete an application and have a criminal background check. At this time, we are not able to compensate potential volunteers for the cost of background checks.

Once you have completed the application, you can return it to us either by mail or email.  If you wish to drop off your application, please schedule a time to come in by calling the CAC.
