A volunteer application form assists the process of recruitment and screening of volunteers by gathering information about an individual’s suitability for a given volunteer role. An application form should be clearly laid out, avoid employment terminology and only seek relevant information about the applicant. The level of detail will vary from organisation to organisation. We highly recommend developing a volunteer application form specifically for volunteers and advise against using an employee application form. Below is a sample volunteer application form that can be adapted to suit your organisation.
