Thank you for your interest to volunteer. Our district offers a variety of activities you may choose from when volunteering your time. Before you begin please be sure to have all of your clearances and information ready for upload, as the system will not save your information. All three clearances must be submitted at the same time and only FBI Clearances through the Department of Human Services will be accepted. It is very important that the information you enter on the application matches your government issued identification card including your full legal name. It is also important that you provide a valid email address so you can be notified of your application status, as well as future communication. Failure to adhere may result in a processing delay. All information collected on the application will remain confidential and will not be shared outside the volunteer program.
*Please note: WINDOWS EXPLORER is Raptor's preferred browser when uploading.
You will be notified once your application is received and in the review process. Following, you will be notified in 30-60 days as to the status of your volunteer approval.
Requests to expedite approvals will no longer be granted.
If you have questions regarding the application process, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.Thank you, District Volunteer Coordinator

By providing your signature, you are agreeing to abide by the rules and regulations of the District Volunteer Program. One or more of the volunteer activities you have selected may require you to provide your United States social security number so we can perform a criminal background check. Your social security number will only be used for this purpose and we do not retain this information.
Your volunteer application has been successfully submitted and will be reviewed per the district’s volunteer policy.
Please Note: clearances are verified at the beginning of every month and only once a month. In addition, provided that all information submitted is correct, prospective volunteers can expect to wait 30-60 days before approval - no exceptions.
You will be notified of your volunteer status once everything is processed. We appreciate your patience.
