The orientation is free and volunteers can choose when and where they’d like to serve. It’s flexible and fun! To attend the orientation, please RSVP to volunteer@dueta​z.org. Volunteers need to bring a driver’s license and the phone numbers of two personal references to the orientation. For more information call 602-274-5022.
