    • Please remember to bring a copy of your current immunizations and, if needed, a completed flu consent form to the interview.
    • If you are age 18 or over, you will complete an additional form at the interview which will ask for your Social Security number and previous names (such as maiden name, name prior to adoption or previous married name) for a criminal background check.
    • If you are accepted into the volunteer program, your volunteer placement will be provided at the conclusion of the interview.
  6. Attend the mandatory orientation. Information regarding dates and locations will be given at the time of the interview. Details about a mandatory orientation and health assessment will be given at that time.
