Becoming a Volunteer at the MFRC
To join our team of volunteers, first you need to fill out a volunteer application form and make an appointment. Then you will meet with our Community and Social Services Officer, who will pinpoint your needs, motivation and skills in relation to the MFRC’s volunteer opportunities. At this stage, she will determine with you which projects suit your interests, skills and availability. Next, she will explain the MFRC’s requirements in relation to the agreement to be signed. Then you will fill out the membership forms so that a volunteer file can be opened in your name (two pieces of ID will be required), and a background check will be conducted.
You will also have an orientation session with the Director of Human Resources, who will explain to you the organization’s structure, rules of operation, and policies and procedures on volunteer work. The session will end with a guided tour of the centre and introductions to the staff members.
