1. Introduction

Thank you for your interest in becoming an intern or volunteer with Project Patch. Each question should be answered in a complete and accurate manner. Below is a review of the intern and volunteer application process.


Step 1 PAPERWORK: You submit an on-line application, cover letter, resume, and a completed employment reference contact information form (found online).

Step 2 DIANA SCREEN®: Schedule an appointment for the Diana Screen® with Project Patch
At Project Patch the protection and safety of the children we serve is #1 priority. For that
reason we screen all candidates applying for positions of trust with children with the
Diana Screen®.

The Diana Screen® is a sexual risk screening tool used by Project Patch to screen candidates who
applying for staff or volunteer positions. The Diana Screen® is administered on a computer in our
office (Garden Valley, ID, Goldendale, WA, or Vancouver, WA), and takes approximately 30 minutes
to complete. The Diana Screen® helps to identify men and women who may step over a sexual
boundary line or who may present a sexual risk to children and teens. The Diana Screen® is used
as one part in Project Patch's overall application/interview/screening process.

By completing The Diana Screen® you are helping to make Project Patch as safe as possible for
children. We thank you.
