Volunteer Orientation

Orientation for Volunteers

Thank you for inquiring about volunteer opportunities at the Healing Center. Volunteers are needed throughout the week for various roles.

Volunteer Orientation

We would love for you to join us in the mission of helping those in need! The Healing Center is an awesome place where volunteers are encouraged to use their gifts, skills, and talents to serve others.

To get started please fill out this Volunteer Orientation Form or email volunteer@healingcentercincinnati.org if you have any questions about volunteer opportunities.

Healing Center Keystone Course

This in-depth class is offered once monthly and required for all Healing Center volunteers after they complete Volunteer Orientation.

The Keystone Course captures the heart of the Healing Center. We will discuss how to serve others in this environment.

You will learn how you can personally participate in making the Healing Center vision a reality: to provide "a Christ-centered community where people receive unconditional love, healing, and the power to change."

Age Guidelines for Serving at the Healing Center

The following guidelines have been established in the interest of serving our guests with excellence as well as the concern for safety for all of our volunteers.

  • 0-7 years old - Not able to serve, but can have fun in the Kids Clubhouse!
  • 8-11 years old - May serve as a Jr. Helper in the Kids Clubhouse without their parent/guardian.
  • 12-15 years old - May serve in Food or Clothing with their parent/guardian. Must stay with parent/guardian at all times. One parent/guardian must be present for every 3 children ages 12-15 years old. 12-15 year olds may serve as a Student Leader in the Kids Clubhouse without their parent/guardian.
  • 16+ years old - May serve independently, but must be able to transport themselves to and from the Healing Center; may not be dropped off/picked up. If not able to transport themselves, parent/guardian must be present in the building. If in groups of 5 or more, an adult must be present and serving with them.

Training

All children 8 years and older who wish to serve must attend both Healing Center orientation and Keystone training; 8-11 year-olds should attend both classes with their parent/guardian.
