This application is for those under the age of 16 who wish to volunteer at Open Arms.


This form should be completed with the information for the person under 16 and should be accompanied by an application for the parent/guardian who will be accompanying this person to orientation and on all of their volunteer shifts. To find the adult application, go back to the Open Arms New Volunteers website.

Demographic Information

Please complete the following profile questions. This information will not be shared outside of our organization and will not be used to screen applicants. Providing these details allows Open Arms to better serve our volunteers as well as gather information for our annual statistics, which are required from a variety of our funding sources.



Parent/Guardian Contact

Please share the information for the parent/guardian that will be accompanying the person under 16 to orientation and on all of their shifts. This information will help us link your two profiles together.



Select how you will complete training

If the parent/guardian of the person under 16 is not a current Open Arms volunteer, both will be asked to attend an orientation. Please select the orientation that best works with your schedule.


Once you submit your application, you are accepted into the Open Arms program and once you attend orientation you can volunteer.
