Volunteers play an essential role in our organization. OneEighty deals with sexual abuse, drug intervention, and other sensitive topics; due to that fact, we treat and recruit volunteers like employees. If you’re interested in volunteering with OneEighty we offer three options.
Group Volunteer Projects- OneEighty welcomes groups to assist with one or two day projects. Please reach out to Dwight Sprang, Volunteer Coordinator, for more information.
Auxiliary Committee- Committee members help plan events that fundraise and educate the public about OneEighty. Committee's meet monthly. To learn more about our auxiliary committee's please contact Dwight Sprang, Volunteer Coordinator.
Trained Volunteer- OneEighty host two training sessions per year. The sessions are an overview of the services and programs OneEighty offers to prepare a volunteer to work with the community or a client. An application is required to become a trained volunteer. After an application has been submitted, we conduct interviews and check references for potential candidates. Qualified candidates are offered a volunteer position and scheduled for one of our training sessions. Please review the application process below.
It's important to note that not all volunteers are eligible for all positions. Volunteers may be asked to complete a drug test, background check and/or TB test.
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, please call our Main Office at 330-264-8498 and ask for Dwight Sprang, Volunteer Coordinator.
