Step 4: All volunteers are required to be fingerprinted for a background check with an approved provider.  Please schedule a fingerprinting appointment with one of the approved vendors and bring a completed LiveScan Application (with authorization code) to your appointment.  Please be advised this is the only form of fingerprinting we are able to accept. One form of government ID will be required at the time of fingerprinting.
