As part of the volunteer recruitment process, we require a Volunteer Application Form from each volunteer and a Criminal Record Check (for volunteers 18 years of age and older) be conducted as part of the screening process. Volunteers are required to reaffirm their interest in volunteering for events every 24 months.
