Volunteer in Connecticut

In Connecticut, there are opportunities to volunteer with our residential program. Check out the volunteer opportunity descriptions below. We will be hosting regular volunteer trainings in the fall of 2020 that can provide you with more information. There is no expectation that by attending a training you have to volunteer - all who are interested are welcome to attend and learn more.
