St. John Ambulance Therapy Dog Program Teams are made up of evaluated dogs with certified volunteers. Improving lives on a daily basis, the program brings joy and comfort to the sick, lonely and those in need of a friendly visit. It is continuing to expand as communities recognize the special contributions that caring, four-legged volunteers can bring to all ages. Does your dog have what it takes to be a Therapy Dog?

St. John Ambulance Car Seat Safety Teams are made up of trained and certified volunteers. Our volunteers educate and coach parents or guardians in the use of child restraint systems. Our goal is to help children travel safely all the time, by ensuring the restraint is properly installed and teaching parents how to install and use the seat correctly every time the child travels in the vehicle. (Age 16+)
Our Outreach Ambassadors attend events in the community to promote the importance of life saving skills and the value of volunteering with St. John Ambulance. First Aid and community involvement are some of the defining characteristics of St. John Ambulance. At Outreach and Education, we want to engage and challenge our community to learn more about life saving skills and the personal rewards of becoming a volunteer. (Age 18+)
