NEW VOLUNTEER TRAINING
Training sessions for first-time volunteers are offered prior to the beginning of each series of classes. Training includes orientation for our current riding location and a review of procedures and policies for a PATH Intl Member Center. Training also offers hands-on experiences for grooming, leading, and sidewalking. Volunteer shifts are explained and sign-up occurs at the end of training.
