A one year commitment is required unless otherwise indicated, and volunteers must successfully complete orientation and training.
You may apply as an individual, or as a group with friends and associates, and volunteers under the age of 18 must have a parent/guardian co-sign their application. Activities may take place either on campus or at off-campus locations and include:

“Crittenton Services provided a wonderful match for National Charity League, Inc. Yorba Linda Chapter to be able to provide meaningful volunteerism for our mother and daughter members. Whether we were babysitting adorable infant and toddlers, gathering gifts for the holidays, or providing treats for special events our volunteers grew as individuals by being able to support the youth and families at Crittenton who need our help. Tp be able to empower young people as they strive to make their lives better is an important opportunity, and we are proud to help.” Kimberly Ostrowski – Chapter President, 2015-2016
