Volunteer Certification Training

Thank you for considering serving with us! When we gather, safety is a top priority. We want to be above reproach, aware as a community, and comply with our insurance. Training and thoroughly screening volunteers are one important step we take to accomplish this goal. This application process will take about 30-40 minutes.

How does this work?

Complete your new or renewal application and watch the safety training video. If this is a new application you will be required to submit three references.

Once your references have filled out their reference form and submitted them, you will receive an email from Checkr to start your background check. The timeliness of this step is entirely dependent on your references getting in their reference form.

Once steps 1 & 2 are completed and we have a clear background check on file, you will be notified via email that your Volunteer Certification is complete and good for 3 years.  

What’s Next?

Please complete the training as quickly as possible so that there aren’t any delays in beginning to serve on a team!
