Next Steps for Applicants After Submitting an Application:
WRD's volunteer coordinator reviews your application and contacts your references.
In general, this takes about one week. If you do not hear from the volunteer coordinator, feel free to email him/her.
If your application and references are in good standing, you receive an email prompting you to complete necessary background checks, a liability form, and tracking your volunteer hours.
This email includes instructions for doing so. Background checks are paid for by World Relief.
If your background checks and references are in good standing, the volunteer coordinator will contact you about getting started with a volunteer opportunitiy.
*You are required to attend a volunteer orientation before engaging in a volunteer opportunity.*
You can attend attend a required volunteer orientation at any point in the application process - you could attend before starting the application process, in the middle of the process, or after you finish the process. Attending an orientation does not lock you in as a volunteer. You are welcome to attend as a way to help you learn if you wish to volunteer with WRD. However, attending a volunteer orientation is required before engaging in a WRD volunteer opportunity.
