Common Questions

Minimum Age Requirements

Volunteers must be at least 14 years of age. Anyone 14 or 15 years old must be accompanied by a parent or guardian while volunteering their time. Minors looking to volunteer at The NOAH Center should visit our Youth Volunteer page.

Expected Time Commitments

We value any time that you are willing to contribute. Our daily operations depend heavily on our volunteers covering certain shifts. These shifts vary 2-6 hours per day depending on the volunteer job position. We hope that all of our volunteers can cover at least one shift a week and can commit to at least four months. However, we have many opportunities that will work with a variety of schedules.

Membership Fees for Volunteering

All new volunteers are required to enroll in our membership program as a condition of service. The membership fee is a one-time fee of $25 per person and provides one volunteer t-shirt, a name badge, and training. If you are unable to pay the membership fee special accommodations can be made with the Volunteer Coordinator on a case by case basis.

High School Community Service Opportunities

High school students in need of school-required community service hours are welcome to volunteer. All volunteers must be at least 14 years of age. Anyone 14 or 15 years old must be accompanied by a parent or guardian while volunteering their time. Students will be scheduled according to their service hour requirements. High School students looking to volunteer at The NOAH Center should visit our Youth Volunteer page.

Court-Ordered Community Service Hours

We are not able to offer court-ordered community service hours at this time.

Background Checks

Due to liability reasons, we cannot accept volunteers that have been convicted of a felony or a misdemeanor for violent crimes against people or animals, theft, weapons, or drug charges. Background checks are required.
