We will be using our Facebook Group to share volunteering opportunities. Just add yourself to the Event on Facebook and you will be able to see when and where to volunteer, as well as be updated with any changes that might occur.
Please report all volunteer hours to Laurie Trager at firstname.lastname@example.org.
To report service hours, please include the following in your email:
BETA APPROVED SERVICE HOURS:
The training days will be held Saturday, January 13th and 20th from 10 am - 5 pm (or shorter if we cover all of the material) in SCB 2009. You are only required to attend one training session. If you are unable to attend either session please indicate that on the survey, included via the link in this email, and we will arrange for you to take the training virtually.

After the completion of training, you will take the certification test online. We will discuss this in training. Then, upon becoming certified please email me a copy of your certifications and Gary will then send you the link to sign up for the VITA preparation days you are available for. As a reminder, once you sign up for a volunteering slot you have made a commitment not only to VITA but to the community members we serve, as a result, cancellations, and especially no-shows are highly frowned upon. That being said, we understand if circumstances arise that require your attention to be elsewhere. Please contact Gary Micu, Jr., VITA Graduate Assistant as soon as possible and ensure that it is a legitimate reason to miss. You can reach Gary at email@example.com.
