We began providing services in February of 2011 and are always looking for additional volunteers to help us serve area residents.  You are able in the application to tell us when and how often you want to be available.   We will respect those limitations.

Those interested in volunteering should do the following:

  • Print out and complete the Volunteer Application package which includes the GVSS DISCLOSURE FORMS for background checks..  Applicants will need to sign the application as well as a copy of the Policies and Procedures AND the last two pages of the GVSS DISCLOSURE FORMS.
  • Those wising to drive for GVSS must also submit (and keep current) a copy of their driver license and proof of liability insurance coverage.  GVSS provides an additional blanket coverage above and beyond the driver insurance as well as workers compensation type coverage.

Please check to make sure you signed the application in BOTH places and the last two pages of the GVSS Disclosure form.  After we have contacted your references and run a check on your driving record, we will notify you if you have been accepted.
