How do I get started?

To get started as a volunteer advocate, you must first complete the Application process, which is coordinated through STSM.  This consists of completing a volunteer application, meeting the Volunteer Services Coordinator for a one-on-one interview, and successfully passing criminal and other background checks.  All applicants must complete this process prior to completing volunteer advocate training!  If you have any questions about this process, contact the Volunteer Services Coordinator at
