Guide for new and returning volunteers plus new updates - Please read below for important information for volunteering.
- SafeSchools Online Training: All level 1 volunteers must complete 5 hours of SafeSchools Online Training.
- Complete and Submit DCFS form: Level 1returning volunteers. If a volunteer has been fingerprinted as a CPS Volunteer in previous years, they will not be required to fingerprint again. Instead, we will rerun their background check information for updated results. The volunteer will receive a copy of the DCFS Authorization for Background Check via email with instructions to complete and email back to us. DCFS is requesting a wet-signature authorization to perform the background check.
- Time Management: Volunteers will be required to log their start and end times in Civicore each time they volunteer. This tool will allow volunteer coordinators to track volunteer's time accurately.
