There is a $60 materials fee to cover the cost of training material for those who commit to serving as an Empower Yolo volunteer for one year. If this is a financial hardship arrangements can be made. Volunteers will be asked to give both a $60 and $50 check. The $60 check will be cashed at the beginning of the training. If the volunteer does not follow through and volunteer, the $50 check will be cashed by the third month of volunteership. There is a $110 professional development fee for those who take the course and do not volunteer with Empower Yolo (this includes the $60 materials fee).
Please note that space is limited and spots are not guaranteed, applications are due Friday, March 23, 2018. Feel free to contact Empower Yolo with any questions concerning the application process, training, or the role of volunteers within our agency. We look forward to hearing from you. We value and cherish our volunteers as we could not provide our services without their dedication and service.
