Apply to be a Volunteer Class Assistant
Thank you for your interest in becoming a KMA volunteer class assistant. From the feedback we've received from so far, our volunteers seem to feel that they are getting as much back — or more — as they are giving. We hope that you will have a similar positive experience.
Please do not be intimidated by the application process. It is similar to a job application process because our liability insurance mandates that we treat volunteers as if they were employees. All necessary forms may be found in the left sidebar.
