We’re so glad you've chosen VEAP as your place to volunteer! This registration form does not commit you to volunteering and instead just begins the process. You may opt out at any point. If you want to get started volunteering immediately, please close this tab and register through our Fast Track application instead. Please note: the minimum age to volunteer is 9 if accompanied by an adult. Youth ages 12 and older may volunteer independently.


To become a VEAP volunteer:


1) Complete this registration form.

2) Attend a VEAP Informational Meeting. You can register for this event at the end of this form.

3) Meet with a staff member or trained volunteer for a brief placement interview to discuss which position is your best fit. All placement interviews are currently completed via phone during the COVID-19 pandemic.


We look forward to connecting with you soon! If you have any questions, contact our Volunteer Department at volunteerdept@veap.org or 952.955.8323.
