Please follow these steps to start today:

- Community Service: If volunteer hours are required from a school, church or work please also complete the form and we will contact you. Please be sure you’ve already spoken with the agency requiring your volunteer hours for proper documentation paperwork and to ensure The Salvation Army is an approved volunteer agency.
- Attend an Orientation. Once your volunteer application is completed, individuals will need to attend a Volunteer Orientation. Come see who we are and what we do! In 1 hour, you will learn how we Do the Most Good in El Paso County.
- Training. After you attend Volunteer Orientation, you’ll have a few online training needs to complete. Once complete you will be assigned to a local ministry to begin serving those in need. Note: Only after the training is completed will individuals be able to volunteer.

IMPORTANT INFORMATION ABOUT GROUP VOLUNTEER PROJECTS
* Group size: most of our projects are suitable for up to 15 people, but occasionally we are able to work with larger groups, on a case by case basis.
* Lodging and meals: we do not provide lodging for volunteer groups, but we do welcome all volunteers to join us for lunch, in the Colorado Kitchen (please let the Volunteer Coordinator know if your group is planning to join us for lunch).
* Group scheduling: all group volunteer project requests must be submitted 30 to 60 days prior to the date of service. The only exception to this is the Colorado Kitchen, which may have openings immediately. (All individual volunteers must have a complete volunteer application online, attended a volunteer orientation, and completed online training).
