As a Christian organization, we feel it is important to protect the beliefs that form the identity of Central Station. Our volunteers come from varying faith and cultural backgrounds. We ask that you agree to respect and reflect Central Station’s mission and values while volunteering with us. We ask volunteers to be warm in personality and accepting of people of various backgrounds and beliefs. We have the right to refuse potential volunteers.

Your time commitment will depend on the volunteer role you take. As a volunteer we depend on you to complete your scheduled shifts. We do understand that from time to time certain situations may arise that prevent you from doing so. Please alert the Volunteer Coordinator of any scheduled absences as far in advance as possible so that an appropriate substitute may be found. In the event of an unscheduled absence- illness or emergency- please alert us as soon as possible, preferably before your scheduled shift begins.

We accept volunteers 16-years-old and older. Depending on your role, volunteers under the age of 18 may be required to be accompanied by an adult while at Central Station.
