Volunteer for Peace Camp

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

Submit by mail to:
The Peace and Justice Center

Wilkes-Barre, PA 18701

Submit in pdf form by e-mail to: 

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 or email peacecamp@peaceandjusticecenter.com. Thank you very much for helping us create a safe environment!
