Pennsylvania Clearance Requirements for Volunteers

Information for groups or individuals who want to stay on our campus:

ALL volunteers age 18 or older who will be staying in our dormitory at the same time that we have volunteers under the age of 18 staying in our dormitory will be REQUIRED to provide necessary clearances before being permitted to stay on our campus.  For everyone’s safety and protection, we do not allow exceptions.

The group’s leader will be responsible to provide a copy of all the necessary clearances to Hosanna Industries not less than three weeks prior to staying on campus. Upon the group’s arrival, a mission worker will verify all the information previously received. Any volunteer over the age of 16 must present photo identification. In addition, all volunteers, age 18 or older, must provide all clearances required. Otherwise, they will not be allowed to stay on our campus. It will be the individual or group’s responsibility to make sure the person returns home or stays in a motel room. We will provide a list of local motels if necessary.
