Volunteers are welcome! Some options for volunteering are provided below. It is most productive for you and for ESC when we know the date/time you plan to volunteer and the necessary safety checks have been completed.
If you work directly with – or are around youth – we require a Background Check through NCSI and the completion of an online training called Safe Sport. Volunteers should dress appropriately, wear shoes and abide by the no weapons, alcohol/drugs or smoking policies of ESC’s approved Policies & Procedures, as well as a reminder that only appropriate language should be used –no profanity ( volunteers should request a copy of the document for their reference). Volunteers must sign a waiver and wear a life jacket at all times (on/near water).
