Next Volunteer Training

We have not held our training since before the pandemic. We are taking this time to improve the training and update information. We should resume volunteer training again during Fall of 2023. 

Volunteers that want to work directly with clients must complete a 21-hour training. All classes are held at the DVS Service Center in Everett.  All classes are held on Monday nights 5:30pm – 8:30pm except for one Saturday.  Please contact Lauren Stiger, 425-259-2827, ext. 1013 for further information on the classes.
