Get to know the IRC. Once you have submitted your application, you will be invited to complete an interview.
After your application is reviewed, you may be selected for an interview.
Fill out a background check form. Once your background check has been cleared, IRC staff will contact you to discuss your placement. Background checks cost $60. The IRC respectfully asks volunteers to make a donation in this amount or more to compensate for the cost of their background checks. The volunteer placement process takes about 2-4 weeks.
