Human Services volunteer orientations provide a format where first-time volunteers will learn about the history and mission of the department, receive information about each volunteer opportunity, and complete appropriate paperwork. When volunteers receive an assignment, they will attend training for that specific program.
Anyone interested in becoming a Human Service volunteer must attend a Volunteer Orientation session. We are currently recruiting for Home Delivered Meals (Meals on Wheels) and Catch-a-Ride programs. Volunteer Orientation will be held on-site at our Olathe office and is 2 hrs in length. Volunteers are requested to register for orientation online. Volunteers can completed their application and upload documents directly into our volunteer portal. If you need assistance registering online, please call Katie at 913-715-8895.
All Volunteer Orientation sessions are from 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, all new volunteers must register prior to the Volunteer Orientation date. No walk-in's will be allowed.
