Letter of Recommendation

Dear Youth Applicant,

A letter of recommendation is highly recommended for 1st year volunteer applications. – Please give your letter writer plenty of notice to complete and submit the recommendation.

Please provide a link for this website to the person you’ve asked to write a letter of recommendation on your behalf.

Remember- the recommendation needs to be completed by a non-relative adult who can speak to your eligibility as a volunteer. Examples of good letter writer candidates are: teachers, counselors, coaches, church leaders, etc. It cannot be completed by a peer nor by a relative.
