 Why Volunteer 

When we work together, everybody benefits. As a part of the GRCHC team, you support a worthy cause, apply your current skills and gain some new ones, meet new people, make new friends, develop professional contacts, feel the personal satisfaction of helping others and make a difference in your own community. The rewards are as unique and personal as your reasons for wanting to volunteer.

How To Volunteer

  • Call the Volunteer Resources Coordinator to make an appointment or click here  for the volunteer application
  • Schedule an interview with the Volunteer Resources Coordinator to tell us about your interests and availability
  • A police check is required (GRCHC will pay for it)
  • Attend orientation and training sessions as required
