Authorization For Release of Confidential Information

It is the policy of Big Brothers Big Sisters of Coastal & Northern New Jersey, Inc. to accept volunteer applicants who in the professional opinion of the intake staff and Executive Director will provide a stable, committed, and healthy adult mentoring opportunity for an eligible child who has been accepted into our program to be matched with an adult mentor.

Whereas prospective volunteers may apply who are inappropriate for the specific needs of our program, the professional intake staff and the Executive Director may decide, based on available assessment materials, to reject a prospective volunteer at any time during the intake process or upon completion of the intake assessment. This is done through a letter to the volunteer. The applicant may request a review with the Executive Director.

Because the intake process covers an extensive amount of information, and for purposes of confidentiality, the applicant may or may not be told the reason for rejection.

A prospective volunteer agrees to accept the professional decision made realizing that this assignment is a specialized one and not suitable for all those who apply.

I understand that:

  1. If I am accepted as a volunteer, I will follow all BBBS groundrules and policies including no overnight visits between Bigs and Littles.
  2. The references I listed may be contacted by mail, telephone, or email;
  3. I am in no way obligated to perform any volunteer services and may rescind my application at any time;
  4. The information I may provide will be used to conduct a background check, to include driving records check, criminal background check, and other records where required by local, state, or federal law for volunteers working with youth;
  5. Other BBBS agencies or youth organizations where I have worked or volunteered may be contacted as references; and
  6. As part of the enrollment process, I will be asked to provide additional personal information prior to acceptance into the program.
