How to Become an APPRISE Volunteer

Most APPRISE counselors are volunteers who start out as concerned citizens who have a question or issue regarding their own health insurance.  Once they find the answer, they want to learn more and share what they have learned with others.

Here is what our volunteer counselors are saying about the APPRISE Program:

“Being an APPRISE volunteer has allowed me to use my talents to help other people in a meaningful way and to make a difference.  It is truly rewarding work and a wonderful feeling when you are able to help someone.”

“When you help a person and they are very grateful, and they thank you, that is the biggest gift you could get and no money could every replace that.”
