Our organization is 100% volunteer-driven, meaning that DTM would not run without people like you who give their valuable time towards our mission. There are four levels of volunteering within DTM based on your availability and desired area to serve. You can read those opportunities below. Volunteers are required to attend a short interest meeting followed by a full day training, and you can find steps on how to become a volunteer at the bottom of the page.
How to Become a Volunteer
1. Attend an interest meeting.
We require all interested volunteers to attend an interest meeting prior to the full day training to make sure that this volunteer opportunity is a good fit for you. Becoming a volunteer requires a full day training and a year-long commitment. This interest meeting will be used to answer your questions and tell you more about our organization and the areas you can serve. Sign up to attend an interest meeting here. Locations and time vary.
2. Attend the full-day Compassionate Crisis Training.
Following the interest meeting, interested volunteers are required to attend the full-day compassionate crisis training that consists of teaching modules that will educate volunteers on the needs of families in crisis in the hospitals through a workshop-style approach. This will allow you to both get to know one another as well as have personal reflection time with God. We will cover physical needs, emotional needs, and spiritual needs of families in the hospitals as well as grief, trauma, and our role as compassionate crisis volunteers and how we can best show God’s love to them during this time. Locations and time vary and will be discussed at interest meetings.
