Additional Info & Volunteer Waiver

The National Cherry Festival encourages volunteer participation by all who are interested. At the same time, the Festival has an obligation to provide a safe and secure environment for its guests, and also has a responsibility to be cautious in handling its assets. To that end, the National Cherry Festival reserves the right to conduct a criminal background check on any volunteer. A criminal conviction will not necessarily prevent an applicant from volunteering; consideration will be made on a case-by-case basis as to whether an individual with a record may serve as a volunteer.

The National Cherry Festival shall keep all information obtained from the criminal background check process strictly confidential, and this information will be used only as part of the volunteer placement process. Only appropriate personnel at the National Cherry Festival will have access to this information.

By checking the box, you hereby consent and authorize the release of any criminal history records and information to the National Cherry Festival, and understand that your application may be rejected based on the results of your criminal history. You may request further information from the National Cherry Festival in regards to the general guidelines that are used for volunteer approval and dismissal in the application process.

By checking this box I agree to to the volunteer waiver
