Orientations are scheduled monthly for the general Adult population, once a semester for College students, and once a year for High School students.
Additional intake steps
During the intake, application and orientation process you can also expect to complete a two-step TB testing process and attend additional site orientations if applicable to your placement.
"Confident Readiness" is a key concept in the training of our volunteers. We prepare you to be confident in your role as an Enloe Volunteer. Training is structured to
provide each volunteer with the resources, information and skills necessary to serve in their volunteer placement. Depending upon placement area, training consists of facility orientation, classes, and on-the-job experiences.
On-going training, in-services, and update meetings are held throughout the year as needed for the education of our volunteers. Annually, all volunteers participate in Re-Orientation as a condition of participation in the volunteer program.
