Thank you very much for offering to volunteer at Mid Coast Hunger Prevention Program!
Please complete this application, and click the "Continue" button at the bottom of the page to submit it. As part of the Application you'll sign up for an Orientation Session, where you'll learn everything you need to know to start volunteering.
If you have questions or concerns at any time, feel free to contact our Volunteer Office at firstname.lastname@example.org or (207) 725-2716 x305.
Please note that during the pandemic our onboarding procedures have changed, and there are a very limited number of volunteer positions each day. The Volunteer and Client Services Manager will get in touch with current availability and need.
Please include at least one phone number for a person we can contact if something happens to you.
Please note that at this point our need for volunteers is limited to the daytime - weekdays between the hours of 8:30am and 3:30pm, and Saturdays between 9am and 3:30pm. We are closed on Sunday.
We occasionally have special cooking events in the evenings, and are looking into more evening opportunities for the near future, but as of now openings are limited.
Please check the boxes for when you would be available to volunteer with us.
For volunteer job descriptions, responsibilities, expectations, necessary skills, and time commitments please visit our Volunteer Opportunity Directory, found here: goo.gl/eaU1LX.
Below are some of the skills and characteristics we're looking for in our volunteers. Don’t worry if none of them apply to you! This helps us better understand your interests, but most of our opportunities don't need special training.
Please check the boxes next to the traits you have and want to use to help MCHPP. For example, if you are a professional chef and would like to cook for MCHPP, check off "Restaurant Experience." However, if you'd rather do something different then leave the box blank.
MCHPP has a wide range of volunteer opportunities. Whenever possible we try to find ways to best utilize the skills and time of our volunteers. On top of the skills you selected above, please take a few minutes to answer these questions about your interests and expectations for volunteering.
1. How do you as a volunteer see yourself supporting MCHPP's mission of feeding hungry people?
2. What do you hope to gain from your work with us? And what impact do you want to have result from your volunteer work here?
3. What skills, experiences, or interests do you have that you would like to share with our organization if it were possible for you to do so?
If you have an illness that could affect your volunteer work, please describe it here:
If so, how many hours do you need, for whom (court, school, scouts, etc.) and by what date?
Due to the pandemic volunteer orientation is no longer required, the Volunteer and Client Services Manager will get in touch about opportunities and scheduling shifts.
By submitting this agreement form, you certify that you answered these questions truthfully, completely, and that you agree to:
Protect the confidentiality of the clients, volunteers, and staff you come into contact with.
Protect the safety of yourself and others by following MCHPP policies and procedures, and notifying a staff member of unsafe conditions, or if you become injured while working.
Treat others with kindness and respect, and maintain a professional work environment.
Perform your work to the best of your ability, including following through with scheduled shifts, completing tasks as assigned, and keeping MCHPP’s mission statement at the heart of what you do.
