Information for current MMCC volunteers

To complement your hands on experience, MMCC has an official printed Volunteer Manual that is required reading. You should plan to complete an initial read within the first month of volunteering. There are hard copies located in MMCC's break area, for reference while in-house. Or, you may view online by clicking on the link below.

(*The password may be obtained from MMCC’s Director of Operations.)
