Acknowledgment and Signature

By signing below, I give permission:


  1. For my youth to participate in the Kansas Big Brothers Big Sisters Program;
  2. For the volunteer matched with my youth, who has been screened and approved by Kansas Big Brothers Big Sisters, to personally interact with and transport my youth to events and match activities, if applicable and allowed by program type. (Community-Based matches only);
  3. For the school to provide social and academic information about my youth to Kansas Big Brothers Big Sisters (e.g. report cards, behavior reports);
  4. For a Kansas Big Brothers Big Sisters staff person to speak with my child at school about their match and overall well-being;
  5. To have my child participate in an intake interview conducted by Kansas Big Brothers Big Sisters staff and complete questionnaires throughout their time in the program containing questions about school, home life, and personal interests to evaluate and improve program services;
  6. To have my youth talk with a Kansas Big Brothers Big Sisters staff person about personal safety;
  7. For Kansas Big Brothers Big Sisters staff to provide contact information for me and my child to the volunteer.

I understand that the program is not obligated to match my child with a volunteer and that as part of the enrollment process, I will be asked to provide additional information through an in-person interview. I understand that the information I provide in the enrollment process will be kept confidential, unless disclosure is required by law.  I understand that incidents of child abuse or neglect, past or present, will be reported to proper authorities. I understand that certain relevant information about my child will be discussed with the volunteer who is a prospective match (i.e. demographic information, information relevant to volunteer preferences, and information relevant to child-safety and well-being).

 

I certify that all of the information on this form is true and correct and that all income is reported.  I understand this information is being given for the receipt of federal funds, that the information on this application may be verified, and that deliberate misrepresentation of the information may subject me to prosecution under applicable state and federal laws. I understand this information will not affect my qualification for the program.

 

I, on behalf of myself and my child, completely release and forever discharge Kansas Big Brothers Big Sisters and its employees, agents, members, volunteers and all other persons on its behalf, together with any successors in interest, heirs, attorneys, agents, representatives, and all persons acting by, through, under, or in concert with them from all known and unknown charges, complaints, claims, grievances, liabilities, obligations, promises, controversies, damages, actions, causes of action, suits, rights, demands, costs, losses, debts, penalties, fees, wages, attorneys’ fees and costs, and punitive damages of any kind or nature whatsoever, whether known or unknown, which I may have, or may have had, against Kansas Big Brothers Big Sisters, arising from any participation in said program and activities, including but not limited to any liability to any right of action that may occur to such child directly, or to me as their guardian.  I intend and understand that this release and discharge is to be interpreted and enforced so as to provide the broadest release and discharge possible as may be permitted by law.  I understand that this information may be shared with the school or with partnership agencies when applicable.

 

If my child is matched with a Big Brother or Big Sister I agree to support my child’s match by reviewing the program and safety information given to me by Big Brothers Big Sisters, communicating with Big Brothers Big Sisters staff as outlined in expectations (which includes communication at least once a month in the first year of the match), and immediately reporting any concerns I might have to Big Brothers Big Sisters staff.
