The forms for Adult Volunteers have been posted on our FORMS page. Forms are available in both PDF and WORD format.
One new part of the volunteer application process for Flower City Work Camp this year is the requirement for a background check for each adult volunteer. Several churches participating in Flower City Work Camp use the Protect My Ministry (protectmyministry.com) resource. This provides a report including a check of the National Criminal database and the National Sex Offender search. The cost is $10 per person. There may be cost benefits to churches who do a large number of checks.
If your church uses another service to do background checks, then we just require that it give information from those two areas (National Criminal Database and National Sex Offender search). All background checks must be current – that is, done within the past two years.
To facilitate the coordination of application information, we are asking that adult volunteers turn in their applications to one contact person from their church who then makes sure that all background checks are done and submits the information as a whole to Claudia Zuch. The standard turnaround time for a background check has been about 24-48 hours.
Update (11-5-15) – A Motor Vehicle check is no longer required for adult volunteers. A current drivers license and insurance will be required of all adults who transport students. Adults must be over 21 years old to be able to transport students
