What we need from you
- An in-date Working With Children’s Check (WWCC).
If you don’t have one as a volunteer, we can get you started on a free application. Once you have one it lasts for 5 years.
- An in-date Child Safe Certificate.
If you do not have one CYC will pay for your online training. Once you have one it lasts for 3 years.
- A completed Leaders Application Form
This form needs two Christian references and lasts for 12 months.
- A signed copy of the Volunteers Commitment Agreement
Is needed for every camp you volunteer at. This states what we require from you and expect you to do, and this can change from camp to camp.
All of these need to be sent 2 weeks before the start of camp to our CYC Camps Coordinator by email at CYCCoordinator@cycsa.org.au.
Getting a Working With Children’s Check (WWCC)
If you do not have a current WWCC, we will need to start you on an application. For this, please send us the following details in an email to CYCCoordinator@cycsa.org.au:
- Your Full Name
- Email Address
- Date of Birth
PLEASE NOTE that it is a requirement of ALL employees and volunteers involved at CYC in any capacity to provide a WWCC (or equivalent) to CYC before the commencement of the camp they wish to be involved in.
The WWCC Application must be completed as soon as possible to ensure we have your WWCC before camp. Once an application is completed, it can take 3-6 weeks to finalise.
Getting a Child Safe Certificate
If you do not have a current Child Safe Certificate, we will need to start you on a short online course with Safer Communities. To get this done, please contact the CYC Camps Coordinator at CYCCoordinator@cycsa.org.au.
