We love having people help out here at Alpha Women’s Center. To help you figure out if volunteering with the Alpha Women’s Center would be a good fit for you, take a look at the below FAQ. Also, please take a look at our Statement of Principle, Code of Conduct, our Statement of Faith, and our Volunteer Application.
If I want to volunteer, how do I go about it?
Call either office and leave your name and address and we will send you information and an application.
What are the requirements to be a volunteer?
You must belong to a fundamental baptistic church and agree with our doctrinal statement. You must also be an active member of your church.
Why do you have a doctrinal statement?
We are members of Life Matters Worldwide (formerly Baptists for Life) and they have a doctrinal statement. Also we offer Bible studies and would expect everyone to have the same understanding of the Scriptures. We take the Bible literally as the Word of God.
Do I need to give references?
Yes, we will ask your pastor and two other individuals for a reference. We have a form for them to complete.
How long does training take?
The length of training time varies according to the amount of time the woman can spend at the Center. There is a training manual and a Policy and Procedures Manual to go through.
Do you have to wait for a training class to begin?
No, the training is done on a one-to-one basis. After the references are received, we will have you start the training.
May I visit the Center before I make a commitment to volunteer?
Yes, you are welcome to visit and see the setup. The Executive Director will schedule a time for you to come in.
How much of my time is expected of me?
We like a commitment of two times a month. Considering the time and effort it takes to fully train someone, a year’s commitment would also be great, but not required.
