Volunteer Screening Process

  • Application: The first step in becoming a volunteer is to complete an online application. Applicants selected from this initial screening will be invited to attend orientation. Selection is made based on open positions and volunteer availability.
  • Orientation: You will receive an invitation to attend orientation. Orientations are held monthly (except for December) on a weekday morning or afternoon. Following orientation, a packet of forms will be provided for you to fill out.
  • Interview: After attending orientation, an interview will be scheduled.
  • Criminal background check: We will conduct background checks on those 18 years and older; Social Security number is required. Those under 18 years of age are required to submit two letters of recommendation.
  • TB Test: Two tests for tuberculosis, given one week apart, are required for new volunteers. Volunteers must return within 48 - 72 hours after the second test to have it read.
