You are in the right place to apply to volunteer at Children's Museum of Sonoma County!  

Before you start, please read the below policy text then scroll down to agree and complete our application.  

Volunteer Policy 

Children's Museum of Sonoma County’s policies are kept up to date in our Volunteer Handbook, which can be downloaded here. Volunteers can expect to be treated with respect and gratitude, and should treat others this way. We strive to provide fulfilling volunteer experiences to all members of the community who support our mission. Due to our work with children, all recurring volunteers 18 and older must pass a background check before they start volunteering.

Background Check Authorization (for volunteers 18 years and older)

I authorize the Children's Museum of Sonoma County to obtain and rely upon Consumer reports or investigative consumer reports in considering me for volunteer employment and, if I am employed, in considering me for subsequent promotion, assignment, reassignment, retention, or discipline. By my signature below, I authorize the Children's Museum of Sonoma County to obtain any such reports and to share the information received with any person involved in the employment decision about me.  

I authorize you to contact my current employer for Employment and Reference Verifications.  

I also agree that this Disclosure and Authorization in original, faxed, photocopies, or electronic (including electronically signed) form will be valid for any consumer reports or investigative consumer reports that may be requested about me by or on behalf of Children's Museum of Sonoma County. 

I have the right to make a request to IntelliCorps Record, Inc, upon proper identification, to request the nature and substance of all information in its files on me at the time of my request, including sources of information, and the recipients of any reports on me which ItelliCorp Records, INC has previously furnished within the two year period preceding my request.  

I certify that all elements of the personal data I will provide are true, accurate, and complete. I understand and agree that any omission, false statement, misleading statement, or answer made by me on my application or any supplements to it and in any interviews will be sufficient grounds for rejection of employment and my discharge after employment.  

Volunteer Waiver for Volunteers 18 years and older 

I wish to volunteer my services to the Children’s Museum of Sonoma County (CMOSC).

In addition, I hereby release and discharge the agents and successors from any and all liability or responsibility for any such accident or injury I might sustain in connection with the actions of any third party or third parties.

Finally, I authorize the Children’s Museum of Sonoma County to photograph and/or to make video or audio recordings of myself while volunteering at/for CMOSC, or to use my name, voice, signature, photograph, or likeness in any manner, including, but not limited to, CMOSC materials, publications and promotions, published and distributed in any form, including on the CMOSC website and social media websites, without compensation.
