Required Training for Volunteers

As part of our commitment to protecting the most vulnerable among us, all employees and all volunteers who have regular or unsupervised contact with minor children, the elderly, or vulnerable adults are required to undergo a Safe Environment credentialing process commonly referred to as the "Essential 3". The Essential 3 components--which must be renewed every three years, include: 1) a background check, 2) reading and agreeing to adhere to a Code of Conduct, and 3) Safe Environment training, which is completed online through Virtus.org. All three Essential 3 components must be completed prior to an employee or volunteer beginning his/her service. There is no cost for completing the Essential 3.
