All volunteers will be asked to complete an application and submit to both a criminal background check as well as a child abuse clearance. For those individuals who are interested in volunteering in a position in which you would work directly with our clients it is required that you complete a training course that is mandated by the Pennsylvania Coalition Against Domestic Violence. The training is approximately 45 hours and is held two times a year at Laurel House. 

Volunteer opportunities also exist for those who you do not wish to work directly with clients. Some examples of non-direct volunteer opportunities are community education, donation drives, etc.
