Volunteer Forms

A collection of all of the resources for volunteer applications and training

This is a repository for all of the core Kalamazoo YFC volunteer forms and documents that require signing

PRE-VOLUNTEER FORMS

VOLUNTEER INTEREST FORM

BEGINNING THE PROCESS

VOLUNTEER APPLICATION STEP 1 - THE ONLINE APPLICATION

  • This includes the app, reference requests, the belief survey, the standards of conduct, the code of conduct and the driver code of conduct
  • Once started, it can not be saved. Volunteers are encouraged to complete in one sitting, otherwise they will need to start over
  • For the Driver Code of Conduct,
    • If volunteers will NOT be driving students, please check "No" but still sign that section 
    • If volunteers WILL be driving students, please check "Yes" and complete the form. Volunteers must also provide a copy of their Driver's License AND a copy of their insurance Declaration Sheet which must be updated every 6 months
  • For references, we ask that volunteers provide 3. One must be someone who is in a pastoral role for them. YFC Staff are not eligible. 
    • Please encourage them to notify their references to watch for an email with an online form. *Check their SPAM folders also, this is not uncommon for our emails

​​VOLUNTEER APPLICATION STEP 2 - THE ONLINE TRAINING

  • This is a PDF form that volunteers must open to view. It will contain the instructions they need to accomplish the training

VOLUNTEER APPLICATION STEP 3 - THE BACKGROUND CHECK

  • VOLUNTEERS DO NOT NEED TO CLICK THIS LINK. Once the application and training are complete, the YFC Office Manager will generate an online background check form that will be emailed to you.  That email will appear to be from Kalamazoo Youth for Christ. Please watch for that - usually within 2 business days of completing the online training.
  • IF a paper version is preferred, click the link in this section for a pdf - this must be printed, filled out, signed and returned - a legible photo/text is acceptable
