These 90-minute new volunteer orientation sessions are an introduction to Explore Buffalo and volunteering with our organization.
Attending a Volunteer Orientation session is required for all new volunteers, except for those applying to one of our Docent Training Classes (the Volunteer Orientation content is included in the Docent Training Class). Volunteer Orientation sessions are held at Explore Buffalo’s office at First Presbyterian Church at One Symphony Circle.
Volunteers who attend a Volunteer Orientation may volunteer in a variety of ways, including at Explore Buffalo events and tabling at area events and festivals. Volunteers who would like to be a Tour Assistant must attend Tour Assistant Training after attending a Volunteer Orientation.
Explore Buffalo organizes regular social and educational events for docents and volunteers, and new volunteers are welcome and encouraged to attend these events after attending Volunteer Orientation.
Please submit the Volunteer Application below, and Explore Buffalo will contact you when the next Volunteer Orientation dates are set.
If you are interested in joining our group of dedicated volunteers but not interested in becoming a docent, please fill out the Volunteer Application below. Please also use the Volunteer Application to register for Tour Assistant Training.
