VOLUNTEER STAFF ORIENTATION

 

We prefer that volunteer staff — especially new ones — attend one orientation session. Our experience, and past volunteer feedback, has shows that it's very beneficial when volunteers are oriented in advance. HOWEVER, IF YOU CANNOT ATTEND ORIENTATION, we'd still love for you to apply to volunteer!
 

If you sign up for orientation and then become unable to attend for any reason, or
need to switch your orientation date, please contact Jennifer Nabozny at volunteers@intuitivesinteractive.com or call/text 517-262-2296 as soon as possible.

 

We have scheduled TWO ORIENTATION SESSION OPTIONS with snacks, drinks, gifts, FANTASTIC door prizes, and good company. The orientations take place at Skyline High School. We look forward to seeing you at orientation! 

GOALS OF ORIENTATION:

- See the venue and know where things are

- Get an overview of the roles & policies/procedure changes

- Meet other volunteers

- Connect with the volunteer team

- EVERY ORIENTATION ATTENDEE GETS A SPECIAL GIFT!
