Being A Volunteer
Volunteers are vital to the existence of our organization. Without the dedication of our volunteers, we would not be able to carry out our programs. Our volunteers fingerprint, distribute newsletters, deliver national posters of missing children, conduct public speaking, and attend information booths. Volunteers participate on committees and are invaluable to our fundraising events.
All of our Child Find PEI volunteers are thoroughly screened prior to becoming a volunteer. They are required to produce a current police record check, have three references checks completed and must participate in a one-on-one interview.
After the successful completion of the screening portion of the application, they become a volunteer. Each new volunteer is required to attend an orientation session which includes becoming acquainted with each other, the Board, Office Manager and learning about our mandate and programs. Volunteers are also properly taught fingerprinting procedures and receive an orientation manual outlining their duties as a volunteer.
