Tips for Completing the Online Volunteer Application

Before filling out the online application ...

  • Be sure that someone else is not already logged in to the SODE website on the computer you are using.
  • You will be asked to become a member of the website (there is no fee to do so) and the process also includes a background screening process that the office will handle based on the information you supply on the volunteer form.
  • You will need the following three items in order to successfully complete the online form:
  1. driver's license (if you have one) 
  2. social security number
  3. head shot/passport-like photo of yourself in JPEG format you can attach to the form.
  • If you are unable to provide any of the three items listed above please contact Carly Thompson at 302-831-3479 or BEFORE filling out the application.

NOTE: To successfully complete the online application and the two online trainings you must have JavaScript enabled on your computer. Most computers have this and it is enabled. Below are enabling instructions for the three most popular browsers.
