Volunteering at Child Centers

We welcome and appreciate volunteers, who must be screened in accordance with state law to protect the safety of our children. All volunteers must fill out the Affidavit of Good Moral Character and Volunteer Affidavit.

People volunteering less than 10 hours a month, also need a local background screening and need to take the appropriate local screening form with them based on their center’s location. This form can be downloaded in the volunteer forms links on this page.

Volunteers who spend more than 10 hours per month in our centers need a more comprehensive Level II, state-required Background Screening, which costs $50, payable by the volunteer. Information about this screening can be found in the Level II Screening links on this page, but to obtain the “Live Scan” form needed for fingerprinting, please visit the center where you’ll be volunteering.
