Becoming a Shangri-La Volunteer

Becoming a Shangri-La Volunteer

Application & Background Check Process
Some Shangri-La volunteer opportunities (primarily internship and practicum placements) per Oregon Revised Statues require an application, criminal history check, and orientation.

Please note that the criminal history check process can take up to six weeks to finish. As required by the position, all offers of volunteer status are contingent upon the approval of the criminal history check.

Disqualifying Crimes Information Sheet

Furthermore, Shangri-La is a drug free work place. Some volunteer opportunities may require the volunteer to complete testing to determine if illegal drugs are present in the body.

Age Restrictions
Internship and practicum volunteers must be at least 18 years of age.

‘Event and Special Project’ volunteer opportunities typically require a volunteer to be at least 15 years of age to volunteer independently. Volunteers 15 years of age and under (who can successfully perform the duties of the volunteer opportunity) can typically volunteer with a parent or guardian.

See individual volunteer opportunity descriptions for specific age requirements.
