Any resources for interview/screening volunteers?

Dear Jonathan,

My husband and I attended your advanced staff development seminar at Youth Specialties in Sacramento. We were wondering if you could email us a copy of the interview sheet you use when you meet with prospective youth workers? Our church held its first risk management meeting yesterday and the topic of a volunteer interview came up. It would be great not to have to re-invent the wheel. Thanks so much for all you do!

Robert and Wendy,

I agree- I hate re-inventing the wheel. I already forgot to get the patent when I did it the first time!

I just opened a new page on this site called “Logistical Crud.” Go there and there is a sample staff application, reference form, interview screening guide, etc.
