Volunteer Agreement

WHYY reserves the right to request a state Criminal Background Check (CBC) and a Child Abuse History Clearance (CAC) upon acceptance into WHYY's volunteer program. Volunteers' continuation in the position will be contingent on the results of the aforementioned clearances. If requested, WHYY will ask volunteers to complete the application forms for a CBC and CAC prior to their first day, and will cover the cost of each application form.

A conviction record will not automatically result in your disqualification of volunteering; felony and misdemeanor convictions will be considered only to the extent they relate to the volunteer position for which you are being considered. However, failure to disclose a conviction and/or mischaracterization of a conviction will result in your ineligibility for volunteering and/or termination from volunteering (even if the conviction would not have barred your eligibility for volunteering had it been properly disclosed).

I understand that as a volunteer I will not receive monetary compensation or benefits for my services, and I have no expectation of obtaining employment with WHYY as a result. I give my consent to be photographed in volunteer activities and for the photographs to be used for WHYY purposes.
