We are excited to help you explore which of our programs or departments would best provide an opportunity for you to utilize your skills, follow your passions and serve our community!
There are specific requirements for volunteers wishing to have contact with the children, including abackground check and an interview. There may be some additional requirements or training basedon the type of work you will be doing. Those specifics will be discussed when we meet together.
Once I receive your application, we will set up a time to meet with you and we will fill out theappropriate background check information at that time. Please keep in mind that once we receiveyour application that there will be some waiting time between an interview with you and sendingyour paperwork for a background check. In some cases, the background checks can take 6 weeksor longer. I will be staying in touch with you throughout this process and fine-tuning any volunteerassignments during that waiting period. Should you need to talk to me or you just want to checkyour status at any time, please do not hesitate to contact me.
Following your acceptance as a volunteer, training will be held along with any other specializedtraining you might need depending on the area in which you will be working.
Again, we thank you for your interest and look forward to building a relationship with you. We trustthat you will pray about your potential involvement with us and we know that God has a purposefor not only our children here at Patrick Henry, but for you as well!
