Volunteer   To Register for an AHTN Position/Event on Volunteer Hub ALL VOLUNTEERS MUST ATTEND A TRAINING EVENT AND PROCESS THEIR CRIMINAL BACKGROUND CHECK BEFORE VOLUNTEERING.  TRAINING EVENTS GENERALLY OCCUR IN THE FALL AND WINTER. CHECK THE VOLUNTEER SECTION OF THE WEBSITE FOR THE NEXT SCHEDULED TRAINING. INSTRUCTIONS TO PROCESS THE BACKGROUND CHECK WILL BE PROVIDED AT THE TRAINING EVENT. THERE IS NO COST TO YOU AND RESULTS ARE USUALLY AVAILABLE WITHIN 72 HOURS. THIS ONLY TAKES A FEW MINUTES. Read FAQ’s Below and Then Follow Instructions Included on this Page Why do you want me to sign up in the Volunteer Hub Registration System so far in advance?   When a mission is scheduled or Code Blue is called, we need to contact the volunteers to tell them to report to the transportation, church or Code Blue Site.  We need to know our volunteer staff in advance for the mission event to be effective and successful. How do I benefit from signing up so far in advance? If you sign up for a position and date (event) now, you have a better chance of getting what you want before others sign up. You can put the date in your calendar now so it will not conflict with other plans. Can I cancel my event if something comes up? Yes, you may cancel the event.  Please cancel the reservation in the volunteer hub and call AHTN (215-550-3868) if it is within 3 days of an event. I’d rather just be “on call.”  Why can’t I just register that way? Valuable preparation time will be lost as we call people and ask if they are available to come in.  In an “on call” emergency situation due to last minute cancellation or an  inadequate number of volunteers, we will need experienced personnel for the process to run efficiently. We ask you to sign up as soon as you are able, so you may gain experience should an “on call” situation arise. As I understand it, I may be signing up for days when Code Blue  or another mission won’t even be called.  I’ll be unable to plan other activities on those days if opportunities come up. This is true, and we do ask you to try to be available the days you have volunteered.  However, if something comes up, you may cancel. We suggest you pick a day of the week that you can commit to the program either once a month or for a specific month and sign up for that day.  It will be easier for you to remember and meet the commitment.
