I understand that for the church to carry on a RFK Camp, it has had to agree to abide by certain policies and parameters established by RFK, including strict policies against any form of child abuse, and that violation of these policies may be cause for dismissal. Child abuse is punishable by law, and the church is bound by law to report allegations of abuse or any inappropriate sexual contact to the proper authorities. ALL reporting is kept confidential, by law. All volunteers must commit to immediately report any behavior that seems suspicious, questionable, abusive or inappropriate between: child-to-child, staff-to-child, and staff-to-staff.
If YOU are struggling with a sexual attraction to children, please opt out of service in the church's RFK Camp or any other child-serving organization and seek help. One option is: *Hope for the Heart" at (800)488-HOPE (4673) or www.hopefortheheart.org.
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 For the Children Fargo and River City Church, I hereby authorize you to contact any references, churches, youth groups, schools attended, former and present employers, charities, courts, 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 hereby release any such references, churches, youth groups, schools attended, former and present employers, charities, courts, and any other person, agency or organization who may have provided information about me, including record custodians, both collectively and individually, from any and all liability for damages of whatever kind or nature which may at any time result to me, my heirs, or family, on account of compliance or any attempts to comply with this authorization. I also agree to hold RFK, the sponsoring church, RFK Camp 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 withthis 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.
