How to Become a Morning Star Foundation Volunteer

Becoming a volunteer at the Morning Star Foundation is very similar to applying for a job. After reviewing the open opportunities and reviewing our policies and procedures, the next step is to submit your resume for review. Your education, work experience, and skills will be reviewed and if you match to an open volunteer position, you will be contacted via email to set up an interview. If all goes well during the interview process, you will receive an email including a link to start your Volunteer Application. Once your application is reviewed and you are selected to volunteer, you will receive an official offer including information about when your orientation will occur. The amount of time this process takes varies, depending upon how quickly you respond to email correspondence, etc. It’s as simple as that!

The Morning Star Foundation is a mission-oriented organization and serves a very vulnerable population: disadvantaged youth. Background checks are necessary to protect the individuals being served by our programs and to ensure we remain eligible for continued funding. Screening our prospective volunteers also helps us to protect our assets, mitigate risk, and avoid potential liability lawsuits. Requiring background checks for all our internal stakeholders is a proactive way for us to protect the important work we are doing to help kids.

Why Do We Require an Application and Background Check?

If your interview goes well, you will receive an email asking you to complete the Volunteer Enrollment Form, sign the waiver of liability, submit a copy of your driver’s license, and undergo a background check.

Step 5: Complete Your Volunteer Application

If selected for an interview, be sure to come prepared. We are looking for candidates that are aligned with our mission and vision. You may want to prepare some samples of your work to share with the CEO.

Step 4: Conduct an Interview

Once submitted, your resume will be reviewed by the Morning Star Foundation CEO, who is an advocate for this work. If you're a good match for one of our volunteer opportunities, the CEO will reach out to schedule an interview.

Step 3: Submit Your Resume
