The Application Form: You fill this out online. It involves basic information about yourself and some simple questions.
The Personal Reference Form: You send a link to this form to 3 people who know you well and they complete it online. Personal References are people who know you well and they can be friends, teachers, counselors, etc. It’s best to have a variety of people.
The Spiritual Reference Form: You send a link to this form to one person who knows about your spiritual faith journey. Ideally it would be a member of the clergy, chaplain, or chaplaincy team member. Remember we’re not looking for perfect saints… at least not yet! Although most of our volunteers are Catholic at various points on their journey, we are looking especially for people who are real and open to grow. Please give your reference the freedom to answer the questions as honestly as possible.
The Health Assessment Form: This form you will need to download and take to your primary health care provider (Physician, Physician Assistant, or Nurse Practitioner). Ideally it would be a person who has known you for a while, but sometimes in college that’s not always possible. You can often go to your health center on campus. Let us know if you need help! When you finish with the Health Assessement Form please e-mail a clear scan or picture of the form (both sides) to firstname.lastname@example.org then mail the original form to: FrancisCorps P.O. Box 11166 Syracuse, NY 13218
The Interview: After we’ve received your application, references and health form we will reach out to you and schedule an interview (usually over Skype). In preparation for this interview we will send you some short answer questions for you to complete. After the interview is complete we will get you a decision a few days later!
Facebook: We will need your Facebook password to get a sense of your profile, past behavior and suitability to be a FrancisCorps volunteer. Ha, Ha, just kidding! Way too creepy!
The Rest: After your application has been accepted the final step is to gather the remaining documents to finalize your acceptance. They include:
Once these last few elements have arrived and are confirmed, you’re in! Welcome to FrancisCorps!
