What’s Next?

You’ve applied, so what happens next? The Volunteer Application Committee will review your application within four (4) weeks. If you do not hear back, please ensure you have checked your spam/promotions/updates or any other filtered folders.

You may have a request for additional images. This means what was submitted could not be properly evaluated, usually because some image submission requirements were not met. If you are concerned you may have submitted images outside of our guidelines, feel free to proactively send additional images to review@nilmdts.org. Our Volunteer Program Manager is happy to work with applicants to ensure the right images are submitted for a successful evaluation.

If you have been approved, you will receive a welcome email and a next steps email with information on how to log into our training portal. All volunteers are required to accept our Volunteer Services Agreement (VSA) and complete online training.

Once the VSA in complete, there is approximately 45 minutes to two (2) hours (dependent on your role) of required video based training in order to prepare you for your NILMDTS role. We ask that the required training is completed within a month of acceptance. If you cannot complete your training but wish to volunteer, we ask that you please let our Volunteer Coordinators know.

Once training is complete, you will be a fully activated volunteer and will receive a badge and welcome packet (if requested) in the mail.
