Please tell us how RAWK can best utilize your skills. (100 words, max.)
In the interest of protecting the safety and well-being of our students, we need to ask:
Have you ever been convicted of or plead guilty to a crime?
A lot of words of great importance:
As a condition of volunteering, I give permission for Read and Write Kalamazoo (RAWK) to conduct a background check on me, which may include a review of sex offender registries, child abuse, and criminal activity records. I understand that, if appointed, my position is conditional upon the staff at RAWK receiving no inappropriate information on my background. I hereby release and agree to hold harmless from liability RAWK, the employees and volunteers thereof, or any person or organization that may provide such information. I hereby grant to RAWK, and its authorized agents, vendors, officers, directors, employees, licensees, affiliates, successors, and assigns the non-exclusive, irrevocable, perpetual, world-wide right and license to use, reproduce, display, perform, edit, create derivative works of, and distribute, in whole or in part, any photographs and/or recordings taken by me during activities sponsored by RAWK, for any purpose, in any and all manner or media now known or hereinafter developed. By signing below, I acknowledge that I also understand that RAWK appreciates me and my enthusiasm, but I also acknowledge that RAWK is not obligated to appoint me to a volunteer position.
Please enter your initials to indicate you agree to the above terms.
