In order to complete volunteer certification, we need you to complete both a Mission Network registration and Diocese Safe Environment training.
Mission Network Volunteer Certification
Thank you for your generosity in wanting to serve and give of your time and talent in our Mission Network programs. In order to begin serving or to attend an overnight activity with youth, you will to need to acquire a Volunteer Certificate by completing the certification steps outlined below. The certificate, when issued, will be good for the duration of 3 years, and you simply need to present a copy to your local program, retreat director, mission director or camp director. Even if you have a valid certificate from your local diocese, Mission Network Activities requires that you complete this process that is mandated by our insurance carrier. The certification process takes typically 2-3 weeks for processing, so please ensure that you register early prior to your participation in a program, mission trip, retreat or camp. If you have any questions about this process please contact us or call (855) 55-MNUSA
