If you are 16 and older and would like to join our volunteer team, please print, fill out and mail in our Volunteer Application. Make sure to read it over carefully and fill out all boxes as requested. The application is comprehensive and designed to ascertain a candidate’s background, experience and skills. This step facilitates the interview process and provides the best match with the opportunities available.
When the complete application has been received, a comprehensive background check is performed in each state in which the applicant has resided, under any name which he/she has been known. Background checks are run internationally, if necessary. Why Me employs “Best Practices” methodology in the formulation of our CORI background check procedures which are consistent with or exceed those of similar organizations. All information is strictly confidential and applicants are notified of all results. Once the application has been reviewed, potential volunteers have an interview and tour with our Volunteer Coordinator, Debbie Karalus, to determine if they are a good fit for the organization.
Volunteers receive training and guidance appropriate for the duties of their task. They are informed about the unique issues, concerns and needs of our families and the specific procedures that maybe important like our Cleaning/Health guidelines. We welcome feedback and questions at any time.
