If you have court-ordered community service hours to complete, you may be able to find opportunities through Suncross Foundation.
Please note: Individuals who have been convicted of or charged with any crime involving or relating to child pornography, child abduction or any sexual offense are NOT permitted to register on this site.
If you’re unsure your offense is appropriate, email us before you create an account at email@example.com. We reserve the right to turn away anyone from using our organization.
How to Get Started
Step 1: Check out our Calendar
Check out our court ordered volunteer opportunity calendar to make sure there are enough projects that work for your schedule and location before creating an account. Projects are subject to cancellation (especially during poor weather conditions) so we recommend getting started early on fulfilling your requirements. Court-ordered volunteers are not eligible for remote/virtual volunteer opportunities because supervision of their hours cannot be provided.
Step 2: Create Your Account
Create your account below and upload the required documents:
- Court Order
- Valid ID
- Number of hours you need to serve
- Nature of your offense (theft, traffic violation, DUI, etc.)
- Deadline to complete hours
Step 3: Pay Fees
Once you complete your account set up, you will be prompted to pay the $40 initial set up fee and $20 per volunteer day fee for court-ordered volunteers due to the additional staff time it requires to process. Daily $20 volunteer fee must be paid in advance to register for a volunteer event. We cannot waive the donation. This is an added service we provide and we want to ensure its sustainability.
NOTE: Your account will be deleted if you fail to show up to 2 volunteer opportunities after signing up. You would have to pay an additional $40 set up fee and a $20 cancellation fee to get reinstated.
Step 4: Find Volunteer Opportunities
NOTE: For qualified court ordered hours, you must volunteer for court ordered volunteer programs ONLY. If you sign up for any other volunteer event, you will not get qualified hours to use for your court order. If you need help and would like further assistance in this, please don’t hesitate to call (855) 500-0150 or email firstname.lastname@example.org to get assistance. We reserve the right to omit hours served at projects inappropriate for court-ordered volunteers in your verification letter.
Step 5: Sign Up, Pay Fee & Volunteer
Sign up for projects that come up as appropriate for “Court-Ordered Volunteers” based on your interests and schedule. The information you need to attend each of the projects (ex. location) will be sent in a confirmation email immediately after you sign up and pay the daily $20 volunteer fee. If you do not see an email, please check your spam box before emailing our team.
Step 6: Request a Verification Letter
All of our projects are managed by either a volunteer Team Leader or the site’s volunteer coordinator. They check-in all of the volunteers and verify your hours in our system so it shows up for you on the “My Account” tab. Once you have completed all the hours you needed with Suncross Foundation, email us at email@example.com and our staff will then be able to write a verification of hours letter. This letter by default is emailed to you on our letterhead with our Tax ID number, your name, the number of hours you completed, and a signature from the department head on it. If your case number needs to be included, please include it in your email.
If you cannot attend a project, please click “Remove Me” next to the project in your Upcoming Opportunities. Court-ordered volunteers who no-show more than 3 projects within a month will have their account made inactive.
Court-ordered volunteers cannot sign up for certain projects, that’s why we ask that you check our calendar for specifically court ordered opportunities.
