COVID-19 notes:

  • We have relaxed criteria for posting volunteer opportunities due to the urgent need for COVID-19 Response. Volunteers are responsible for confirming the legitimacy of the group or organization(s) they are working with. Never hand over money or confidential information to groups looking for volunteers. SPARK does not vett volunteer opportunities on the site. Before agreeing to volunteer, remember to do a background check on the organization and staff you'll be working with. Ensure they are a registered nonprofit and that they are taking appropriate health and safety precautions
  • Please confirm that the organization you want to volunteer with can ensure your safety.
