How long will this process take to become a volunteer?

Approximately 2-4 weeks. Our goal is to contact you within 1 week after receiving the applicant’s online application form and 48 hours after receiving all other required information from the applicant (Criminal Record Check and reference forms). 

The process does require the submission of forms by the applicant.  The time it takes an applicant to submit forms can either lengthen or shorten the time it takes to complete this process. This time is factored into our process time.
