  • The program fee is $15 and covers the cost for a junior volunteer polo. The polo must be worn with khaki pants or long skirt during each shift.
  • Provide a current copy of your immunization record, even if you are a past junior volunteer. Volunteers must have all series for Hepatitis B, Varicella, and MMR.
  • Available to have two tuberculin skin tests read between 48 and 72 hours after receiving each test. 
  • Submit a letter of recommendation from a current school teacher, pastor, etc.
