If a person decides that they would like to volunteer, they need to complete an application. Completing an application ensures we are keeping with state and federal law (e.g., confidentiality, etc.) and as a way to screen potentially inappropriate or special circumstance applications (underage, groups, etc.).
The link to our volunteer application is here. Once the volunteer-applicant fills out and submits the application, we get a notification that it is sent. Our Grant & Resource Manager will then review and approve the applicant, as appropriate. Usually, we can get back to people the same day, and if not, within 24 hours. The application only takes 3 minutes to complete.
Yes, applications are required in keeping with state and federal law. If you volunteered with us before and completed a paper application, you will need to complete the new online form.
If you have difficulty completing the form for any reason, please call 304-292-0101 ext. 204, and we will walk you through the process.
Yes, with the written permission of their parents or guardian.
Once your application has been reviewed and approved, you will receive a password reset link by email, as well as instructions on how to use the system. If you have your password, you will be using our online volunteer system called VicNet. VicNet (Volunteer Information Center) InterNet is a web-based system that will allow you to see what service opportunities are available and self-schedule for single, one-time service opportunities, or on an ongoing basis for up to 6 months at a time.
If you are already a volunteer to access VicNet, click on the link at the bottom of our site that says Volunteer/Coordinator Sign-in. Once you click on this link; use your email address as your username and create a password to log in. You receive the password link when you are first approved to volunteer (within 24 hours of your approval email). Your password will allow you to access VicNet and sign up for volunteer opportunities on the calendar. This link will allow you to reset your password to anything you want for future use.
If you have any problems accessing the calendar, please contact our Grant & Resource Manager at firstname.lastname@example.org.
To process your application, we need you to complete our internal form here. Go to the bottom of the page and complete the application. We usually can get back to people the same day, and if not, within 24 hours. The application only takes 3 minutes to complete.
Once your application has been approved, you will receive an email with instructions on how to use every aspect of our system. You can see all the hours you have worked on your phone, tablet, or PC and download that information if you need a printed copy. You can receive a signed copy by the site supervisor or volunteer coordinator on request by emailing email@example.com.
You receive your unique PIN when your application is first approved. You will find it in the first two emails you receive from us. This PIN is unique to you and is used to track all your hours while you are volunteering with us.
If you have a learning contract or other documentation that you need for a class assignment, you must schedule an appointment with the person who coordinates and supervises student volunteer curriculum requirements. Please call 304-292-0101 ext 204 after your application is approved and before you start a volunteer assignment to schedule a time to discuss your contract and any needs you have to fulfill for your course requirements.
Yes, we welcome groups! Due to state and federal requirements, everyone must complete the application. Please make sure that everyone in your group includes your group name on the form in the area specified for that information.
