The Approval Process

Once the above steps are complete, the below approval process can begin and will take 1-3 weeks to complete.

NAD Applicants:

The NAD votes to accept you as a volunteer and then sends it to us to do the same. If we accept you as our volunteer, then the NAD will officially approve of you volunteering for us.

Applicants outside of the NAD:

Your division votes to approve you as a volunteer from their division. Then your application goes to the General Conference (GC) then to us, then back to the GC. You will find out after this point if you have been approved to volunteer on one of our islands. Thank you for your patience.
