Application and Training Process

Fill out this Volunteer Application Form to tell us just how fabulous you are and why you would like to volunteer with us! 

We require one professional reference to process your application. Please share this form with your reference. Your volunteer application will be processed only after we receive a completed form from your reference.

Once you have been cleared by the reference check you will be contacted by a volunteer or staff member from our organization. We will conduct a brief interview to learn a little more about you. If we think you are a fit for our organization, we will have you sign up for a volunteer orientation at the end of the interview.

This full day orientation is mandatory for all volunteers. During orientation you will learn more about our organization, services, programs, volunteer policies, volunteer opportunities and more!

Once you have attended our orientation, that’s it! You are now a part of the Feminist family. You will receive a Welcome email from our Grassroots Organizer to remind you about all the various ways that you can sign up for opportunities and stay connected with us. You can also check our activity calendar to sign up for events and volunteering opportunities!

 Apart from the volunteer orientation, some volunteer roles require you to undergo additional training/s. This information will be available on our activity and event calendar as well. If you are unsure if this applies to you, ask our Grassroots Organizer. These trainings include:

  • Clinic Liaison Training (Mandatory for clinic liaisons)
  • Voter Registration Training (Mandatory for volunteers who help out with voter registration activities)
  • Legislative Advocacy Workshop (Strongly recommended for grassroots organizing volunteers)

*If you have any questions or concerns you can reach out to our Grassroots Organizer Libby Mandarino at libbym@feministcenter.org. Please allow us 10-15 business days to process your application. We cannot entertain phone calls relating to status updates about applications at this time. *
