Emergency Contact

I believe to the best of my knowledge, that all information submitted is truthful and accurate. I acknowledge that, as a volunteer, I will not be compensated for the services I provide. I understand that to become an active volunteer, I have to fill out a separate background check form and will be contacted by UDC HR to complete this part of the application process.*
Please note that some of our centers partner with DC Public Schools (DCPS) and many of our programs engage public school students. Anyone wishing to volunteer with CAUSES in a DC Public School must complete a separate clearance process with DCPS before working in the schools. Information on the DCPS Clearance Process can be found at the following link:
*this does not apply to UDC students and staff, who have already gone through a background check process.
