Once you have made your initial inquiry with us, we will review your application and invite you to send a current resume via email to our volunteer coordinator. If your resume meets the needs of our current volunteer positions we will invite you to an interview, which will take no longer than 1/2 hour to an hour. In the interview we will discuss your interests, the skills that you have to offer, availability and provide a more in depth description of the Brain Injury Association of Waterloo-Wellington and the volunteer position which you have applied for.
You will leave the interview with plenty of information including the paper work for you to obtain a Police Records Check if a PRC is required. Some of our positions do not require a PRC but if you are directly working with clients and cash you will need to obtain one.
In addition to the police records check we also ask you to provide names of three references. This may be a clergy member, a teacher, a professor, an employer. It may not be a family member or close friend.
Once our screening process is completed and reviewed by staff and board, we will place you in the appropriate volunteer role. All volunteers are placed on a 3 month training/probationary period.
