Volunteers play an essential role in our organization. Because OneEighty deals with sexual abuse, drug intervention, and other sensitive topics, we treat and recruit volunteers like employees. To volunteer with OneEighty you must first complete and submit our application form. Additional volunteer forms can be found below.
After an application has been turned in, we conduct interviews and check references for potential candidates. Qualified candidates are offered a volunteer position and scheduled for one of our quarterly training sessions, which are held in January, April, July, and October.
It's important to note that not all volunteers are eligible for all positions, and all volunteers are subject to drug testing.
If you would like to be considered for a volunteer position, please complete and submit the application at your earliest convenience. If you have any other questions, don't hesitate to let us know.
Because of our wide range of volunteer opportunities, OneEighty uses Volunteer Levels to determine the specific requirements of different volunteer positions:
Level 1 positions do not have direct contact with clients, the community, or confidential information. These positions require a one-day, 3-hour training and include responsibilities like working in the donation room, cleaning, or maintenance work.
Level 2 positions have limited contact with clients, the community, or confidential information. Jobs may include helping in the office with planning/organization or doing awareness activities/special events in the community. These positions require 3 days of 3-hour trainings and also require a fingerprint background check.
Level 3 volunteers have direct contact with clients, the community, and/or confidential information. These jobs include working in the shelter/residential housing, victim advocacy, and community education. Each of these positions requires a minimum of 2 additional days of training at 4 hours each, as well as a fingerprint background check and a tuberculosis test. Volunteers must be at least 21 years old with proof of a high school diploma/equivalency.

Friends & Neighbors began in 1988 with the goal to raise additional monies for OneEighty through various fundraising efforts while also serving as a public relations arm for OneEighty. Through the years, the group has grown and now includes auxiliaries in Wayne County and Holmes County. Today, Friends & Neighbors puts on numerous events and fundraisers throughout the year to support OneEighty.
