    2. On the survey below check "all" the possible shifts that you can volunteer, so we can negotiate your schedule.

           Even if you indicate you are available more often, you will initially be scheduled for no more than two time shifts per week, one shift per day. More time shifts may become available after training and throughout the summer, at which time we will contact you to see if you are still available.
