  • Signature & Acknowledgements

  • I understand that, if selected, I will be asked to review all of the program's rules, regulations, and responsibilities for becoming a mentor. I understand that I will be asked to agree to all policies prior to being matched. I understand that AFC is not obligated to provide a reason for their decision in accepting or rejecting me as a mentor.

    I understand it will be necessary for AFC to conduct a background check regarding my driving record, criminal history, personal references, and employment. I authorize AFC to obtain any needed information regarding my driving record, legal/criminal history, character references, and employment from any state or federal agency, my employer, and personal references for the purposes of participating in AFC programs. Further, I provide permission for AFC to conduct the same investigation of my background in previous states in which I have resided.

    If I am applying for a program involving a one-on-one match, I understand that information about myself may be anonymously (without my name) shared with a prospective foster youth and his/her caregiver(s) to aid in determining a suitable match. Once a match is determined, my identity and any other information known about me may be shared with the youth and parent/guardian to ensure a safe and successful mentor relationship.
