Additionally, due to limited staffing, all volunteers MUST schedule volunteer hours or come during the designated volunteer times which they can learn about at the class. We do appreciate so many students wanting to volunteer here, we have a limited staff and can not always be available to train new volunteers which is why we have established regularly scheduled volunteer training sessions which can be found on our FB page (Muncie ARF).
Group/clubs are more than welcome to reach out to schedule a special volunteer training class by calling and/or emailing.
