Placement Application Timeline

 Timeline: 2020-2021

  • December 15, 2019: Online application due (application and position).  Note that applications are now accepted year-round.  Applying by December means your position will appear on the list being considered by Volunteer applicants in January for interviews starting in February.
  • December 15-March: LVC staff will review applications, contact placement staff as necessary for additional information, a possible site visit, acceptance/rejection.
  • February: Placements may begin interviewing Volunteer applicants as early as February.  Interviews can continue until LVC identifies a match for the Placement. (Note that Volunteers can apply and enter the program at any time over the year.) 

Current Placements

If you are a current LVC placement, please complete a new application and position form in 2019/2020. Next year, you will only need to complete the position form if no other basic information changes.

Application Tips

Review the Sneak Peek of the application and prepare your responses before opening the online form.  You will not be able to save the form, but must complete it in one sitting.

NO DEADLINES, however, applying by December means your position will be on the early list Volunteer applicants are considering.  Placements start interviewing applicants as early as February.

Regardless of when you apply, here’s the process:

  • Apply — by submitting the application and position
  • Approval — we approve you for the program, and you participate in Zoom online orientation
  • Orientation — Zoom online orientation (1 hour)
  • Placement Interviews —  interview three Volunteer applicants assigned to your organization by LVC
  • Rankings — Placements and Volunteer applicants rank each other
  • Match — from your rankings we identify a Volunteer for your position
  • Sign — Placement, Volunteer, and LVC sign a 3-way contract, the Placement pays the Placement Fee and LVC raises the rest for the Volunteer’s expenses
  • Enroll — you fill out paperwork as necessary for your participation in the LVC Program
  • Start — your Volunteer starts serving at your organization after in-person orientation in August!
