About our Volunteer Program:

The community has embraced our positive approach and we have attracted gifted people, groups, and businesses inspiring a spirit of giving and helping.

  • The well structured program offers each volunteer an orientation, personal interview, job placement, and training. Additionally, several recognition events are held throughout the year.  N.O.A.H. staff and volunteers rely on and enjoy the partnership of one another.
  • Our Volunteer Program has attracted over 360 weekly volunteers from 21 of the surrounding cities, 5 counties, and 2 Tribal Nations.
  • Volunteer service in 2009 equaled that of 24 full-time equivalent staff, surpassing the 16 full-time equivalent paid staff positions.
  • Young people from Eagle Scouts, Girl Scouts, school classes, and home school groups from around the community have been inspired to give of their time, talents, and fundraise for N.O.A.H. further instilling the spirit of giving.

Specifics About Our Volunteers: 

Our volunteers are asked to commit to the same day and time each week; one day a week for 4 hours for 6 months.  Please download and review our Volunteer Manual for more specific details on our Volunteers and their commitment to N.O.A.H..

The minimal age for volunteers is 14, and we require youth between the ages of 14 to 15 to have a parent or guardian volunteer with them.  We are sorry but we are unable to grant exceptions to this age requirement.

We do not offer volunteer positions for Court Ordered Community Service or persons convicted of: violent crimes against people or animals, theft, or drugs.
