Apply to Volunteer
In order to protect our clients’ privacy and rights, and to ensure that those helping them are equipped to provide the best support possible, MJMC has a formal process through which we screen and equip our volunteers.
Step 1: Download the Application Package (or pick it up at our office: Contact Details)
- Application Form
- Volunteer agreement & oath
- Photo Release
- Translator-Interpreter Application Form (if applicable)
- Volunteer Parental Consent Form (if applicable)
Step 2: Complete your forms
Step 3: Submit completed forms to us. Visit our Contact page for details
You can do this through:
- drop them off in person
Step 4: Criminal Record Check
Please wait until you hear back from us regarding your application form before submitting your criminal record check.
- Please note CRC must be dated within two months of application submission.
- Whenever possible CRC must be received directly from the law enforement. This standard is in place within the City of Moose Jaw. If your rural jurisdiction of law enforcement follows a different practice, please let us know.
- There is a fee of $10 to have a CRC done for volunteer purposes and the law enforcement agency (police) will forward your Criminal Record Check to us.
- When submitting your Criminal Record Check form , be sure to:
- read the small print
- use a blue pen!!
- If you live in Moose Jaw, you will need to submit your form to the Moose Jaw Police Service. When doing so, be sure to indicate to the staff taking the form that it is for MJMC/ the Syrian Resettlement Committee
** Don't forget that your Criminal Record Check goes to local law enforcement, and not to us!
In light of the outpouring of community support in response to the arrival of Syrian Refugees, MJMC may not be able to quickly engage all those who are interested in volunteering. MJMC staff will be sure to contact volunteer applicants as soon as we possibly can and/ or as soon as an appropriate volunteer role becomes available. We are deeply grateful for your interest and support.
