Thank you for supporting the work of Uprising. We rely on volunteers to engage our community in a variety of ways. We value YOU and we value your time.

A self-paid background check is required for all volunteers and interns age 18 and above. By covering this cost, you are supporting the work we are doing. To request a copy of your completed background check report, contact us with your name and order confirmation number and a copy will be sent to you.

Volunteer Applicant Requirements:

  • Complete a background check here
    This cost is approx. $31.95, which you will be required to cover. If you’ve completed a background check in the past 12 months, you can send a copy to us at
  • Read and sign the Confidentiality Agreement and Photo Release Form
  • Complete our online training (we’ll give you access to our training portal once your application and background check are both received)
  • Submit a record of your volunteer time (including time spent on paperwork, emails, and training!) through our volunteer tracking form.

If you would like to apply for a scholarship for the background check, please contact us at We do not want the cost to be a barrier for volunteers who can’t pay.
