It is our policy to run criminal and sex offender background checks on applicants 18 years of age and older.  If you pass the checks, you will be approved.  Your volunteer approval will expire after 2 years from the original date.

I have no experience and am worried that I might be uncomfortable with the level of skill required to work with children with disabilities. What will I be doing?
Our program manager knows each of the volunteers and athletes at TASK. We match the volunteer to athlete. Many of the children at TASK just need a “buddy” who can complete the activity with them. Many children need encouragement and someone who can help model the activity so they can complete the activity. At TASK, we focus on what children CAN do and encourage supportive words. You will NEVER be alone with a child, and there are volunteers and instructors around you who can assist, if needed. If you ever have ANY questions, please do not hesitate to ask!

I need a certain number of hours for my school/organization. Where do i get a record?
Yes. Because we use Raptor for registration, sign in and sign out, the system tracks your hours.  You might sign in at events to track your hours. Simply long into your portal and choose “hours” from the tab.
