I agreed to help pass out snacks at VBS again this year. I helped the past two years, even when I was a week overdue with Amy. “When are you due?” “Last week.” “Ohhhh(said as they retreat quickly).” Anyway, I got an ‘application’ to be a VBS volunteer in the mail. I would have no problem with a copy of my license and signing off on permission for them to run a criminal background check. BUT, they also want personal references, my education, training and experience working with children, employment history, residence history and a statement about my personal salvation experience. I graduated from a private college-prep school and have two college degrees. I have experience doing social work and advocacy in the mental health field. Although out of practice, I am competent in ASL. I have taught ASL to children in VBS and been in in charge of the crafts for 200+ VBSers. I taught Sunday School for two years. I run a support group and have good HTML skills. I am a Girl Scout leader and an amateur photographer. I have four children. Do you think I’m qualified to hand out cookies?
