They also answer questions and provide assistance in person or by phone.

Prospective youth volunteers, who must be between the ages of 14 and 17, are subject to a juvenile record check. Parental consent is required for all youth volunteers. Mandatory training provided by the Burlington Vicinage must be completed prior to volunteer service.
