There is a process to becoming a volunteer and you will not be asked to make a commitment until the training is completed. You will be asked to complete an application and provide three references. The application is submitted to the WCVGA. Each applicant will undergo a background check. After the training is completed you will be asked if you are ready to commit to being a Volunteer Guardian. The WCVGA will try to geographically match Volunteer Guardians and Wards. Once a match is made you will be given information about the person, their needs, and health status. If at that time you are ready to proceed as a Volunteer Guardian, the WCVGA will prepare the necessary paperwork for court.
