STEP 1- Application: Please take a few minutes to fill out
the Volunteer application. You will be asked to provide two
character references of people who are not related to you
that we can contact.
STEP 2 -Fingerprinting: Every volunteer working with minors
at New Life Petaluma must be Live Scanned (fingerprinted).
STEP 3- Interview: A team member will meet with you for a
quick interview so that we can get to know each other a little
better and can answer any questions you might have. This is
also a great time to talk about different opportunities that are
available and where your gifts/personality might best match up.
STEP 4- Training: We believe success in working with NextGen
starts with being prepared. We want to give you all of the tools
and training you need to hit the ground running. We will also pair
you up with a ministry partner so that you get continued support
(and because volunteering is just more fun when we
do it together).
Thank you again for your interest in joining NextGen at New Life! We feel honored that you might want to partner with us in pointing kids and families towards Jesus. If you have questions before you start this process, please feel free to reach out anytime. We would love to chat with you more about specific opportunities, requirements and how you could fit in with our team.
