If you would like to volunteer, please download and print the Volunteer Information Form (pdf) and submit with clearances

The following clearances are needed for volunteers over 18 who will have direct contact with children:

  1. Pennsylvania Child Abuse History Clearances (CCY113)
  2. Pennsylvania Criminal Record Checks for Volunteers (SP-164A)
  3. (If you have lived outside Pennsylvania in the last 10 years) FBI Criminal Background Checks.

The first two forms are available to you at www.dhs.pa.gov/publications/findaform/childabusehistoryclearanceforms/index.htm  and you may call the FBI Background Check Unit at (717) 783-6211 for information about #3.

If you already have been cleared within the past five years, either for volunteering or employment, your clearances are still in effect and you simply need to submit a copy.

If you have not ever applied for these kinds of clearances, then because you are a new volunteer applicant your fees will be waived. Please don’t wait to obtain your clearances because the turnaround time can be up to 2 weeks.

Need help figuring this out? Call the Peace Center at (570) 823-9977. Thank you very much for helping us create a safe environment!

Return completed form to:

Peace and Justice Center of Northeast Pennsylvania
