Please note - If your volunteer work involves 10 or more hours per week in direct contact with children, you must be tested for tuberculosis and show documentation that you are free from tuberculosis before serving as a volunteer. This test can be completed by your family physician or at a qualified clinic (such as those found at some pharmacies) and will be at the volunteer's expense. TB tests generally take 3-4 days to complete. Please provide a copy of the documentation from the test facility upon completion of the test.
