Step 1: Select Your Group
Start by selecting the volunteer group or groups that match your interests. If you are not sure which group to join, click on the group icon and a volunteer group description will appear. Check appropriate box or boxes and click continue.
Step 2: Create Your Account
Create a user name that you will use to log in to the SERV SD registry. Then create a password that is a combination of six characters, numerals, symbols, or a combination thereof.
Step 3: Complete Registration
You will be asked to provide contact information as well as specific information pertaining to the group or groups you have selected to join, including information necessary to validate your credentials and to meet federal standards. When you register you will enter information on the best way to contact you. If a deployment opportunity occurs, this is how you will be contacted. Therefore, please be sure that the information you give is accurate and up-to-date. Any time you have changes in your contact information, please log on and update your profile.
Step 4: Approval Process
Your application will be automatically approved or manually reviewed depending on the group you have selected to join. The approval process may take several days to complete; once your application status has changed you will receive an e-mail notification. Once approved, you are a SERV SD volunteer and will be able to log on to access news and announcements and you are now eligible to be alerted of volunteer opportunities. You will also be able to log on and update your information at any time.
Participation in a deployment opportunity is optional. You may decide at the time a call is made to volunteer if you are willing and able to respond.
SERV SD is a state-owned-and-operated registry and will not provide your name and information to agencies without your permission. For additional information regarding the program or registration process, you may contact Andy Klitzke.
