How to Volunteer

How to Become a Volunteer with the Mount Pleasant Village Helping Hands Program:

  • Complete a background check during which we will call your references and vet you using a company called Verified Volunteers. All “vetting” information is kept private.
  • Note any additional certifications or skills (such as CPR training) that you have to offer

Once you are a volunteer with the Helping Hands Team, fulfill requests that fit your preferences as they come in. From time to time, we will all get together to see how the process works, how we could do it better, and to appreciate all your work. There is a Volunteer Forum on the website where we can share experiences, post questions, and celebrate success with each other. 


Thank you for your interest in volunteering!
