Thank you for your interest in becoming a Pathfinder Ranch Volunteer. The fact that you are reading this means you have a strong interest and commitment to giving others and we want to pair you with opportunities that allow you to do so.
Pathfinder Ranch works primarily with children and to ensure the safety of those children, we take a number of measures to ensure employees and volunteers are carefully selected.
Below you will find an application. This is the first step in sharing your strengths and interests with us so we can match you with tasks that you will hopefully enjoy. The application also provides us with basic contact information, references, and confirmation that you are committed to the organization’s policies. Before beginning the application, please review and gather any needed information. This form cannot be saved mid-process. If you prefer to complete a paper application, we are happy to mail you the form. Just send your mailing address to firstname.lastname@example.org
Once this application is submitted, you will be contacted by a Ranch representative for an interview. If you are under the age of 18, a parent or legal guardian will need to sign an additional form which will be provided after submitting the application.
Selected applicants will be asked to submit a Voluntary Disclosure Form attesting to the background of the applicant. Applicants will also be asked to undergo a background check using Live Scan. Forms for both will be provided as will reimbursement details for the Live Scan. Depending upon the applicant’s availability, the entire process typically takes a couple of weeks.
Applicants clearing the background check will be approved through the volunteer portal and given access to a calendar of volunteer opportunities. This portal can be used to view opportunities, sign up, view previous events, and communicate with volunteer coordinators.
Please note, the Live Scan background process is an annual requirement. A member of the Pathfinder Ranch team will contact you regarding the process.
If you have any questions or need assistance, please email our volunteer coordinators, Tess & Debi, at email@example.com
. Be sure to include your name phone number, and how we may assist you. We are volunteers too and may not access emails every day; however, we will get back to you ASAP.
