Please complete the JTDC Volunteer Application by October 17th…

Thanks to everyone who attended the program facilitator information session today.  For those of you who are planning to join Girl Talk as program facilitators, as you know, you will have to undergo a background check in order to work inside the facility.  Remember that only those who attended today’s information session can participate as potential program facilitators.

OK so we thought that this would be easy but it is not.  We have a two step process for completing the JTDC application.

First you can click HERE to download and complete the FIRST part of the application which is the volunteer application. 

Next attached is a PDF of the application which includes the BACKGROUND CHECK REQUEST FORMS — You will need to complete that by hand unfortunately.  You DO NOT need to complete the volunteer application part a second time.  However if you would like and it would be easier for you, you can complete BOTH by hand.  Click HERE to download that information.  Again if you want to make life easier on yourselves you will just complete the PDF version by hand and mail that entire packet to us.

Because we now have to complete TWO parts of an application and one will have to be done by hand, we are asking that you MAIL your completed forms to us at:


1530 W. Morse Ave

Chicago, IL 60626

The deadline for getting this application back to us is SUNDAY OCTOBER 17th.  If you can get it in well before that deadline, it would be even better.  It takes several weeks to go through the process of having a background check done through the County.  We are planning to turn all of the applications for program facilitators in at one time on Monday October 18th at 10 am.

To recap, you can e-mail the first part of the volunteer application to us at or you can mail the entire packet (including background check request) to us via snail mail.   Sorry for this inconvenience.

Please remember to get it to us by October 17th.
