If you are interested in becoming a volunteer, please call 603-772-9922 or email svdp@svdpexeter.com. Once the completed application is returned, a background check will be performed.  If you are a good fit for us, we will contact you to invite you to a new volunteer orientation. As an organization made up almost entirely of volunteers, we rely on the help of volunteers for every aspect of operations. Please review our current volunteer roles below.

Please note that to protect our clients’ dignity, we can only accept volunteers that are 18 years of age or older or out of High School.
