Would you recommend O.A.R. Opportunities, Alternatives & Resources?
I know this is a great opportunity to work and have the knowledge to know everything on the job and if so to get a job at that place I would volunteer.
Before I became the Volunteer Coordinator for OAR, I was a volunteer from September 2009 until my first day on the job in April of 2015. My journey to OAR started with a school project. Now 7 years later, I've made a career out of being inspired by change.
Back then we really didn't have volunteer orientations and very little training. Now we have a one hour session where you can learn everything you need to make the proper choice. We use empirically based materials for several of our jail classes, and we have shadowing sessions with multiple training sessions. We also have continuing education seminars several times a year. I might be an excellent example to quantify why OAR is an amazing place because I am happy to announce that after several months of asking there was a change in policy and I get to volunteer again doing what I love most in life. However, there are many who are equally inspired. Click here to learn more https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Z8LyjWA4K-c#action=share
