Our PLACE relies on the generosity of community members like you to maintain a 1:4 ratio of caregivers to participants while keeping tuition fees as low as possible. If you can offer four to eight hours per week of your time, we will thoroughly train and support you. Although volunteers directly involved with clients are on-site for their entire session, many of these assignments require minimal time at the facility; for instance, "planning, developing, arranging for" can be done primarily at home. Please look below to see the activities needed. Like clients and paid staff, volunteers must provide proof of vaccination to be in the building. Also, please note, if volunteer activities inside Our PLACE with clients - versus work outside or from home - is expected to amount to 36 or more hours per year, the State requires that the volunteer have a criminal background check (provided by the State of Tennessee). ​
