Be a volunteer. Be a friend.

HFC volunteers are passionate, engaging people who see the innumerable strengths and abilities of our members. In every role, volunteers encourage HFC members to move past the fear of impossibility and into the realm of possibility.

Volunteer Opportunities

Program Volunteers

These volunteers have the most direct contact with HFC members by providing one-to-one support for HFC members at daily programs. Program volunteers work under the guidance of HFC staff to ensure a quality experience for our members in a safe environment. We encourage our program volunteers to make a long term commitment to the organization and to share their hobbies, skills, and interests with HFC.

Event Volunteers

These volunteers provide immense value to our community relations and fundraising efforts. Your investment of a few hours (or a few days) of time and talents will help ensure the long-term viability of HFC programming.

Office Volunteers

These volunteers bring specific skill sets that enhance the behind-the-scenes operations and external communications within the HFC office. Examples include IT support, accounting, and fundraising expertise.

2. Next, you will be asked to complete and submit the HFC Background Check form. This is a standard consent to a background check as completed by the Bureau of Criminal Apprehension. HFC requires a background check of all staff and volunteers that work directly with HFC members. Completed forms can be either mailed to our PO Box (PO Box 16437 St. Paul, MN 55116) or emailed to HR@highlandfriendshipclub.org

3. The final step is to complete the volunteer orientation! After you have submitted the volunteer application and background check forms, a staff member from the HFC office will reach out to you via email to arrange a time to complete the in-person volunteer orientation!
