Information for you
Please be aware that some volunteer positions will require further references, and, if you are providing transportation, proof of driver's insurance and a valid driver's license.

All volunteers working directly with refugee families must complete a background check as required by IRIS (Integrated Refugee & Immigrant Services).

Your work at DARA will involve access to names and other information regarding refugee families (clients). DARA is required to adhere to the highest standards of confidentiality in the management of client information. This means that:

• Your knowledge of names of DARA clients or your possession of any other information about DARA clients is to be shared with absolutely no one outside of DARA unless required by law to do so.
• Discussion of client-related information within DARA is to be limited to what is necessary and appropriate to the completion of work assignments and other client-centered tasks.

Violation of confidentiality will be viewed very seriously.

DARA often relies on electronic communications, and you will need to be at least somewhat available for participation via Slack (https://slack.com/), email, and text as well as by phone. We'll provide training if you haven't used Slack before.
The submission of this application signifies my understanding of and agreement to these terms. *
