Students must have a strong commitment to working with the children and the Center. Fingerprint/Criminal Records Checks are required of all students working at the Center.  The cost of this process is the responsibility of the student.

You will be given a form to fill out which demonstrates that you have read and understand the information contained in this handbook. New employees of the Center are also required to attend an Orientation at the beginning of the semester.
