Microsoft provides a volunteer application template on its Microsoft Office website that may be downloaded and used in Microsoft Word. 123ContactForm.com also provides a free volunteer application form template on its website.
Volunteer application forms vary from organization to organization, but they typically include contact information, the birth date, social security number, driver's license number and previous work or volunteer experience. The form should be signed and dated by the applicant.
Volunteer forms should also have the person's emergency contact with the relationship of the contact and her contact information. The forms should note the volunteer's level of education, languages spoken, physical limitations, criminal convictions, current employer and certifications such as first aid and CPR. It should have the volunteer's references and preferred volunteer areas. A skills checklist and disclaimers should be on the form. The form should also ask the reason for volunteering, the times available for volunteer work and how the person heard about the organization.
