What to expect when you apply to become a Sara Riel Volunteer:
Applying to volunteer is much like applying for a job. We take many factors into consideration before accepting volunteers to assist with our programs. We take our responsibility for people we support seriously, we screen all applicants thoroughly. Completing your application as thoroughly as possible will help us assess your suitability for volunteering at Sara Riel.
Please note: to be a volunteer at Sara Riel you need to be at least 18 years of age.
Once our office receives your application, a Sara Riel Volunteer Services staff member will reach out to arrange a date and time for an interview and will ask you to submit two (2) references at the time of the interview. The interview is one way of finding out more about you and your interests.
During the interview, feel free to ask any questions you may have about volunteering with Sara Riel and the Réseau Compassion Network. We will also discuss expectations of volunteers and the importance of confidentiality. Depending on the volunteer role(s) that you are interested in, a criminal record check, a Child Abuse Registry and Adult Abuse Registry check may be required. You will be notified of any required checks during your interview.
If a successful match is made between your skills and abilities and an available position, Volunteer Services staff will offer you a volunteer position. If you decide to accept the offer, a start date will be determined.
All volunteers must attend the volunteer orientation and have all forms signed before volunteering.
You will then receive specific training for your volunteer position on your first shift. You are now ready to begin volunteering!
Sara Riel acknowledges that we are on Treaty 1 territory, the traditional gathering place of the Anishinaabe, Cree, Oji-Cree, Dakota and Dene people and the traditional homeland of the Métis people.
Every time we acknowledge this truth, we have an invitation and an opportunity to reflect on what we do and what we can do to make Manitoba a better place for everyone who lives here
