Volunteer Program
The DOVE Center Volunteer Program works to provide a wide variety of worthwhile volunteer opportunities for community members. We strive to do this by discovering volunteers' interests, time availability, and skills, and appropriately place each one in a well-matched volunteer position.

As a result, we hope that each volunteer will confidently refer the DOVE Center as a positive experience and help build a network of DOVE Center friends and advocates across the community.
We can benefit from many different skills:
administrative & secretarial
event planning
graphic & web design
desktop publishing
education (prevention)
legal (direct client advocacy)
community connections
Monthly training meetings
