This organization is extraordinary! The training they provide is the best I have ever experienced: professional and thoughtful. Everyone I have encountered (paid and volunteer) is passionate about the work, and humbled by their experiences. I highly recommend this compassionate and wonderful group, and I plan to volunteer with them for as long as they will have me.
— A TRU Volunteer
Here’s the process below for becoming a volunteer at TRU Community Care. You can also volunteer at TRU PACE (Program of All-inclusive Care for the Elderly).
Step One: Application
Step Two: Interview
We will contact you for a personal interview. During the interview, we’ll learn more about your skills and interests to find a position that is fulfilling for you and beneficial to the patients and families we serve.
Step Three: Orientation & Training
Orientation and training times vary.
Administrative and thrift shop volunteers participate in a 1 to 2-hour orientation and receive on-the-job training.
Patient care and grief support volunteers complete a longer, 20-hour core training course that is scheduled three times a year and additional, specialized training tailored to specific areas of service.
Upcoming Patient Care and Grief Support Volunteer Training
Note: Applications for an upcoming training must be received a minimum of two weeks prior to the first session and are considered on a first come, first serve basis. Any applications received within two weeks of the first session will be considered for the next training. Please contact the TRU Volunteer Department with any questions at 303.604.5226. Thanks!
