Membership in the Mills-Peninsula Auxiliary (Volunteer Program) is open to anyone age 18 and older. There is also a special program for high school students. No special skills are required. If you have a special area of interest, we’ll work with you to create a meaningful assignment.
Your commitment is up to you, although we ask for at least four hours per week. A convenient schedule can be arranged to fit your needs and lifestyle.
