Young Adult: Enrollment Process

For parents, guardians, and mentors of candidates 18 and older selected into internship and corps positions.

Once candidates accept their offer, they will receive information about the specific enrollment steps required to secure their position with SCA. The information below provides a general overview of some key elements in the enrollment process.

Background Check: Participants aged 18 and older are required to complete and pass a background check. This can take up to several weeks to process, so participants should complete the form as soon as they receive it.

Proof of Identity:  Participants are often required to submit proof of identify for various forms. We know that often times parents hold on to important documents to ensure their safety. Having those ready and available for participants can help to expedite their enrollment process.

Medical Forms: Participants taking part in SCA Corps programs are required to complete medical history forms (internship participants are not). We encourage parents/guardians to help participants complete the medical form to ensure that the information is complete and accurate.  

Gear Lists: Participants will receive information from SCA or the partner agency about the gear required for their position. All participants receive an SCA uniform package.

Travel: Participants will receive specific travel information when they are accepted to a position. We recommend they arrange their travel as soon as possible once selected.  For assistance, participants should contact their Advisor or Project Leader directly.
