Become a KidSight Volunteer
We’re eager for you to get involved with KidSight. Our Volunteer Program is intended to expand services, promote public awareness, and engage individuals in the mission of detecting childhood vision problems early. We currently have two volunteer positions open: Volunteer Screening Technician and Volunteer Screening Assistant. You can learn about volunteering with KidSight by reviewing our Volunteer Handbook. Below are the next steps to becoming a KidSight Volunteer:
Step 1: Complete a Volunteer Application
KidSight is now accepting Volunteer Application. This application allows us to get to know you as an individual and your interests as a volunteer. There is no cost associated to submit the application. Once completed, you can email your application to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Step 2: Complete a Criminal Background Check
As our programs grow, volunteer applications and criminal background checks allow us to provide transparency and credibility to the daycares, schools, and Head Start centers that we serve. Once we receive your application with completed background check sections, we will submit a criminal background check on your behalf. All of your personal information will be kept confidential.
Step 3: Schedule Your Volunteer Training
KidSight is dedicated to providing training opportunities for both staff and volunteers. Training for Volunteer Screening Assistants can be done online or via telephone and should take about 20 minutes. Volunteer Screening Technicians will require more extensive training over several months. We will schedule your training after you complete the application and background check.
After completing Steps 1-3, we will mail your KidSight Volunteer Badge. We ask that you proudly wear this badge to all of the screenings that you attend.
