VOLUNTEER!

Are you interested in helping Trailblazers?

    We are always ready to invite volunteers to collaborate with Trailblazers! We would LOVE to have you join us!

 

Why volunteer to work with Trailblazers?

    Trailblazers is an apostolate. Working on any apostolate is fruitful for your spiritual life, earns a partial indulgence, and enables you to collaborate in the Church's mission to spread the faith.

    Collaborating with this apostolate enables you to contribute concretely to your local community, participate in forming young people in faith and culture, and to help youth know and love and imitate Jesus Christ.

 

Are there other reasons?

    The time you dedicate to Trailblazers can also be a very valuable way to acquire volunteer hours for service projects or academic or professional requirements.

 

How can I volunteer?

    You can fill out the form below. Trailblazers requires your name, e-address and age. You can include comments. Please check any boxes where you have interest in helping or even just learning more. Don't forget to press the "submit" button below, or we will not receive your information.

 

What will happen if I fill out this form (below) and send it in?

    If you are interested, contact us by sending us your name and e-mail, checking as many boxes you like below to show us where your interests are, and Trailblazers will contact you. Since volunteering for this apostolate is a serious commitment, you will be interviewed by the director and one or more of the volunteers, so everyone involved can make sure this is something good for you, and that the commitments you may wish to undertake are as attractive as realistic, considering your own interests, skills, and possibilities of time and transportation. By contacting us for more information you have not yet made a commitment, and you'll have plenty of opportunity to express your desires and thoughts before Trailblazers will allow you to undertake any part of the apostolate.

 

What if I'd like to do a certain job, but I'm not sure exactly how to do it?

    Trailblazers trains each volunteer to do the job he or she signs up for.

 

VOLUNTEER FORM:

 

The following three fields are required:

 

Name*

E-mail*             

Your birthdate*

    Anything else you want to say to us? Enter your comments in the space provided below. And don't forget to check one or more of the boxes below!

     

    The following list of volunteer positions is divided into two parts: the service to the apostolate itself, and the fund raising required to make possible the many activities Trailblazers organizes. Please check any number of boxes below, where you might be interested in either learning more about that or even doing that type of work.
