Volunteer Interview Questionnaire 

8. Are you willing to complete paperwork, keep track of services, and document all client contact? *
I understand that the Volunteer Application and Volunteer Interview Questionnaire acceptance will be based on interview and referral process. The interview and screening is described in detail. 1. The Volunteer Coordinator interviews the candidate in person. Other staff may assist in the interviewing process at the request of the Volunteer Coordinator and/or the Executive Director. a. During the interview, the candidate is asked questions from the Volunteer Interview Questionnaire and their answers on the Volunteer Application are discussed. An overview of the agency, the volunteer program and the volunteer opportunities are explained. b. All policies and procedures applicable to volunteering are reviewed, including ethics, and confidentiality requirements which pertain to the volunteer position. All applicants are encouraged to ask questions and express any concerns they may have during this process. 2. Following the interview, Volunteer Coordinator will review the candidates information and decide what roles align with the skill set of the volunteer. 3. References are then checked and pertinent information verified. Two references must be on file before beginning as a volunteer (personal or work related). A criminal background check is run both locally and with the Texas DPS. Due to the nature of our work we do not accept anyone with a criminal background (misdemeanor or felony), minor traffic violations are allowed. Applicants that do not disclose criminal background on application will be disqualified immediately. 4. If the volunteer is not a fit for the available roles or if they do not qualify (due to availability, age, lack of transportation, etc) the Volunteer Coordinator will contact the candidate via phone or email and inform them of the outcome. 5. Once accepted as a volunteer, we provide any training that may be applicable to your role. A wrap up interview is scheduled following training to address any remaining questions or concerns by staff and/or candidate. In some circumstances, the Volunteer Coordinator may find that certain roles may not be appropriate for the volunteer. In these cases the Volunteer Coordinator will work with volunteer to find a better role within our agency to compliment the volunteer's skills. In some cases roles may not be available and the volunteer may need to make a difference with another organization. 6. Candidate is then scheduled to volunteer based on their agreed upon availability or the needs of the position.
