The Bethania Group welcomes both youth and adult volunteers. Potential volunteers can set up an appointment with the volunteer coordinator to explore options available for a volunteer experience that meets their needs.
Requirements for volunteering applications are:
- Acceptable age is 14 years of age to enter the program. The minimum requirement for volunteering is one hour a week for at least three months.
- Applicants between the ages of 14 & 18 need parental/guardian consent allowing the applicant to volunteer.
