Volunteer

   

Wedgwood provides a wide variety of Volunteer Opportunities, ranging from helping with yard work to working 1:1 with a client in care.

Wedgwood Christian Services is thrilled to announce we have a new application system, called AppliTrack, which will better meet your needs as applicants. Effective July 1st, we will no longer post new positions on the Dominion system; however, we will continue to consider applications already submitted while we transition to AppliTrack. If you haven’t been contacted by a Human Resources Representative by July 31st, please, apply within our new application system. We are confident you will appreciate the changes and appreciate your patience and understanding as we work to provide you with a greater application experience. Sincerely, Human Resources Department Wedgwood Christian Services
