Application process

In accordance with state licensing requirements, volunteers are also asked to complete a Non-Law Enforcement Record Check and a Child Abuse Registry Check.

Volunteers performing professional services for which certification or licensing is required shall provide a copy of such certificate or license for the personnel file (for example, physician, RN or hygienist).
