Background screening requirements are disclosed on City volunteer application forms in accordance with the City's volunteer policy (PDF). The City requires background screening for many, but not all, volunteer positions. Background screening is a mandatory requirement for volunteer positions that involve working with minors, working with confidential information, or handling cash or financial records; see the volunteer policy for more information about background screening criteria.
Youth and children of all ages are welcome when accompanied by their parents or legal guardian(s) at designated "family-friendly" volunteer events and activities. For all other volunteer programs with the exception of the LIT Program, the minimum age for youth to participate is 14, provided an adult or legal guardian accompanies their child during the event. Youth between the ages of 15 to 17 do not require an adult or guardian to be present.
