REPRESENTATIONS AND RELEASE
I understand that I will be required to submit to a background check as a condition of acceptance as a volunteer, and that unsatisfactory results, refusal to cooperate, or any attempt to affect the results of these background checks will result in me being removed as a volunteer or volunteer applicant.
I hereby certify that all of the information provided by me in this Application (or in any other accompanying or required documents) is correct, accurate and complete to the best of my knowledge. I understand that the falsification, misrepresentation or omission of any facts in these documents may (or will) be cause for the denial of acceptance as a volunteer, or immediate removal as a volunteer, regardless of the timing or circumstances of discovery.
In consideration of the receipt and evaluation of this Application by Bee the Difference, I hereby authorize you to contact any references, church, schools attended, former and present employers, and any other person, agency, or organization that may have information about me, and for them to provide to you such information (including opinions) that they may have regarding my character and fitness for working with children; I agree to hold Bee the Difference Leadership, and any other person to whom the release above applies, harmless from any damages, specifically including attorney fees and court costs, created by or relating to my unwarranted attempt to collect damages for providing information described above or any other unwarranted action by me in connection with this Application. I waive any right that I may have to inspect any information provided about me or by any person or organization identified by me in the Application process.
In addition, I hereby release, and agree that I, my successors, assignees, heirs, guardians and legal representatives will not make any claims or take any legal actions against, Bee the Difference or any of its affiliated organizations, or its officers, directors, employees, agents, or volunteers (“Released Parties”), for my injury, death, damage or loss, however caused, arising from or in connection with my participation in Bee the Difference activities, with the exception of my injury, death, damage or loss as the direct result of illegal or grossly negligent acts by Bee the Difference, and I will hold the Released Parties harmless from any costs or loss, including attorney fees and court costs, arising from or in connection with my activities in violation of these provisions.
I understand that submission of an application does not guarantee me acceptance as a volunteer. I further understand that should an offer be exended to me as a volunteer, it is for no specific duration and may be revoked by either Bee the Difference, or me at any time, with or without cause.
I have carefully read the above Application and this Acknowledgement and Release and know and understand its contents; I also know the above is legally binding on me. I sign this Application and Release of my own free will.
