Two Steps to Volunteer

  1. All volunteers interested in working in any of the roles that involve interacting with our members must complete a criminal record check. Only communications, fundraising, and Board member volunteers do not require a criminal record check. Please download our Volunteer Criminal Record Letter to take to your local police station. Be sure to take photo ID with your form. If there is a cost for the criminal record check, save your receipt and Blind Beginnings will reimburse you.
