Kaleidoscope Youth Center (KYC) Volunteer Application
Please complete this form to assist with programming at KYC. All volunteers who work directly with youth must complete a BCI background check - and an FBI background check if they've lived in Ohio less than 5 years.

*** If you are are under 21 years old, please go to https://www.kycohio.org/programming.html to join us for programming! Youth volunteer opportunities are through our Community Advisory Board. ***

Please indicate below any prior experience or special skills you might possess to facilitate youth programming.

Here are the next steps to becoming a KYC Volunteer:

1) All volunteers who work directly with youth must complete a Background Check. We require all volunteers to use our pre-approved agency: Fast Fingerprints (1486 Bethel Road, 43220). KYC will provide you with a form to complete and submit during your appointment when you have submitted your application.

          -- Folks who have lived somewhere other than Ohio in the past five years will need to complete BOTH FBI and BCI background checks.

          -- Let them know that you will be working with youth at Kaleidoscope Youth Center when they ask the reason you're being fingerprinted. Have them send results to: Kaleidoscope Youth Center, Attn: James Westfall, PO Box 8104, Columbus, OH, 43201.

**Financial assistance for the background check is available on a limited basis for folks who need it, please email info@kycohio.org for more information.**

2) Please schedule a 30 minute Virtual Interview at www.calendly.com/leokyc to talk about center programming, expectations of volunteers, and to answer any questions you may have about volunteering. This Virtual Interview can be scheduled before or after you have completed your Background Check.

3) All new volunteers MUST attend an orientation prior to scheduling their first shifts, offered quarterly. We have a limited number of spots available for each training, but there will be more volunteer training opportunities throughout the year as well.
