NSSD relies on volunteers to fill a variety of roles in the organization.
We seek those who share our passion for serving those who have served.




Volunteer applications are to be submitted by and for adults only.
All potential volunteers must attend a Volunteer Informational meeting and a Phase 1 Orientation before volunteering with our organization.

After you complete the volunteer application, you will automatically receive our monthly volunteer newsletter to keep you abreast of NSSD volunteer news and opportunities. You can reach us at volunteer@nextstepservicedogs.org if you have any questions.

PLEASE NOTE: The nature of our program does NOT provide all volunteer opportunities to work directly with the dogs. Volunteers who interact directly with the dogs are dog trainers and dog sitters.  However, all volunteers are welcome to view the training sessions and join in the NSSD community.
