Thank you for supporting the work of The Avery Center. We rely on volunteers and interns to walk alongside survivors and engage our community in a variety of ways. We value YOU and we value your time.
A self-paid background check is required for all volunteers and interns age 18 and above. By covering this cost, you are supporting the work we are doing. To request a copy of your completed background check report, contact us with your name and order confirmation number and a copy will be sent to you.
Volunteer and Intern Applicant Requirements:
- Complete a background check
If you've completed a background check in the past 12 months, you can send a copy to us at email@example.com
- Read and sign the Confidentiality Agreement and Photo Release Form
- Complete our online training (we'll give you access to our training portal once your application and background check are both received)
- Submit a record of your volunteer time (including time spent on paperwork, emails, and training!) through our time tracking form.
If you would like to apply for a scholarship for the background check, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org. We do not want the cost to be a barrier for volunteers who can’t pay.
