Annual Returning Volunteer Verification / Authorization Form - Step 1 of 2


This form should only be completed if you have performed volunteer services on behalf of the Rockford Park District during the preceding 12 months. If you have NOT performed volunteer services during the preceding 12 months, you must complete a New Volunteer Packet.


This offense disqualifies an applicant to offer volunteer services for the Rockford Park District. We appreciate your interest in our organization. You may now exit the application process.



Except as otherwise instructed, please review and check each box below:

I understand that as a volunteer with the Rockford Park District, a criminal background check will be conducted during any calendar year in which I perform volunteer services. I consent to the Rockford Park District obtaining my criminal conviction history from resources selected by the Rockford Park District.

I confirm that the current information that I previously provided in the "Volunteer Information Form" that I completed and that is on file with the Rockford Park District is accurate and has not changed.

Please check this box only if your volunteer duties include operating a licensed motor vehicle (this includes tractors and bobcats). By signing this Agreement, I consent to the District obtaining a Drivers Abstract on me from the Illinois Secretary of State.

I understand that I am a Mandated Reporter under the Illinois Abused and Neglected Child Reporting as a volunteer for the Rockford Park District and that I have previously signed a form confirming that status. Therefore, I acknowledge that I am required to report suspected child abuse and/or neglect when I have reasonable cause to believe that a child known to me in my volunteer capacity may be abused or neglected.

I acknowledge that I have previously signed a "Volunteer Waiver and Release Form" that I have submitted to the District; in submitting this Returning Volunteer Form, I confirm that the understandings set forth in the "Volunteer Waiver and Release Form" (including, but not limited to, the warning of risk, waiver and release of claims and assumption of risks) remain in full force and effect.


Criminal convictions are not an absolute bar to be a volunteer, but will be considered in relation to specific volunteer/job requirements. Note to Applicant: In keeping with applicable law, you should not disclose conviction information involving records of conviction(s) that have been ordered by a court to be sealed or expunged. Additionally, you should not disclose records of arrest that have not resulted in convictions (including those that have been ordered by a court to be sealed or expunged).



I, the applicant for this volunteer opportunity, warrant the truthfulness of the information provided in this application.

Please re-type your First and Last Name in the box below. Please be advised, that entering your name in the box below constitutes a legal signature confirming that you acknowledge and agree to the above Statements and the Terms of Acceptance.
