We are thrilled to have you share in our mission to empower individuals and communities through education and skill-building programs. At this time, we ask that you submit 1-2 references and the status of your Vulnerable Sector Screening (VSS) to ensure the safety and wellbeing of the individuals we serve. Your dedication and commitment to our cause is greatly appreciated and we look forward to working together towards a brighter future.

Details about the Vulnerable Sector Screening (VSS)
It is our organizations policy that all volunteers have a current Vulnerable Sector Screening (VSS) in order to volunteer with youth. If you are under 18 you are not required to submit a VSS.

  • If you DON’T HAVE a VSS within the last 2 years, please APPLY for one through your local police services. Send us an email with proof that you have applied to begin volunteering.
  • If you HAVE a VSS within the last 2 years, and we don’t have a copy, please EMAIL it to volunteer@empowermentsquared.org.
  • If WE HAVE A VSS FROM YOU dated within the last 2 years, there is no need to do anything.
