One thing all our volunteers have in common is that they arrive with a smile and leave with the feeling of having made someone’s day.

To become one of our valued  volunteers, contact us so that we can direct you to the right person to discuss your availability and what you would like to offer.

If you decide to go ahead and become a volunteer, you will need to go through an orientation and participate in a police check which will be paid for by SCCA.

Volunteers don’t get paid, not because they’re worthless, but because they’re priceless.  ~Sherry Anderson
