These times indicate whether you will be here in the morning (9-12) or afternoon (12-3). Volunteer shifts are about two hours. Please arrive at whatever time is convenient for you during your slot.What should I do when I arrive at Valley View for my first shift?
Go to the main Valley View office and sign in as a guest. Fill out a nametag and proceed to the Media Center. Heather Palmer, Media Specialist, or Liz Kincaid, Media Assistant, will be there to greet you and direct your work.
What if I am unable to volunteer due to a conflict, illness or vacation, etc.?
Contact one of the subs from the roster OR ask another volunteer to switch shifts with you OR just let me know by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. Once the volunteer roster is complete, you will receive a copy via email; it includes all volunteer emails and phone numbers.
