Step 2 Complete the Application

Complete the volunteer application online. 

  • The application requires your TB clearance date. The form will be collected once you have completed the paperwork process.

  • Print the forms from the link shown after your application is submitted. If you do not have access to a printer, please stop by Human Resources to pick up a copy.

Note: If you answered “yes” to any question regarding your background, you will need to provide a written statement including your circumstances, dates, names, cause, and sentence or fine etc. If you fail to send the written statement, it will delay your process and possibly stop you from becoming a volunteer.

The statement can be sent to HR@vcusd.org with the subject "Volunteer Background Statement."

As a volunteer, you will need to complete a Live Scan. A Live Scan is a background check that is processed through the Department of Justice (DOJ), which requires being fingerprinted.

  • Take the Request Live Scan Service form to the Live Scan location. Live Scan services are located at the UPS Store. The address is 101 W American Canyon Rd, American Canyon, CA 94503.
  • Complete the application information section of the "Request for Live Scan Service" form. You have to print the form to complete it.

Note: You must have a valid government-issued ID to be fingerprinted.
