- Be willing to undergo all required screenings (includes background check)
- Be able to complete a minimum of 20 hours within 6 months
Simply put, we ask for at least 4 hours a month for six months.
While not required, the option to volunteer more than the minimum is welcomed. Screening includes an in-person interview, background/central registry check, drug screen, and tuberculosis test. Depending on state requirements, a volunteer may have to undergo FBI fingerprinting as well. This process can take up to four weeks to complete.
