Instructors and Presentors

At the Mosaic Center, we want all of our volunteers to feel prepared and confident to serve in their particular roles. Every volunteer goes through a General Orientation and training that explains who we are as an organization and how we engage with our students who come from a variety of different backgrounds. This training is offered one on one or in small groups by the Volunteer Recruiter & Trainer or can be completed via an online tutorial. Once the general training is complete, the Volunteer Recruiter & Trainer will provide more specialized training depending on the role in which they serve (tutor, childcare provider, prayer partner, or encourager).
