Volunteer Inquiry

Note: Answering yes will not automatically prohibit individuals from becoming volunteers, but will be considered with respect to time, circumstances, seriousness and relationship to volunteer responsibilities. Some volunteer positions may require a background check. If you are selected for one of those assignments, you will be provided with a separate criminal background check authorization form./Nota: Responder sí no prohibirá automáticamente que las personas se conviertan en voluntarias, pero se considerará con respecto al tiempo, las circunstancias, la seriedad y la relación con las responsabilidades de los voluntarios. Algunos puestos de voluntario pueden requerir una verificación de antecedentes. Si es seleccionado para una de esas tareas, se le proporcionará un formulario de autorización de verificación de antecedentes penales por separado.
