Minor Volunteer Guidelines
A minor is any person under the age of 18 years who is required to attend school. Under state and federal law, minors may not be employed in any hazardous occupations, and Caltech places the same restrictions on volunteers. Because the restrictions can be complex and vary according to the age of the minor, please consult with Human Resources regarding each specific minor.
Minor Volunteer Process
Minor volunteers are not permitted to work on campus until Human Resources has approved their assignment.
Approval may take up to four weeks to complete.
Step 1: Minor Volunteer Activity Questionnaire
The Division/Department must complete the Minor Volunteer Activity Questionnaire to start the minor volunteer process. The questionnaire should be reviewed and approved by the following:
Division Chair or Division Administrator
Caltech Faculty Member
After completion and required signatures by Division, please send to Human Resources at [email protected] for review by:
Environment, Health, & Safety - Review any potential hazards associated with the specific research, type of equipment to be used, and any potential chemical, biological and/or other exposures.
Employee and Organizational Development - Review Questionnaire and complete required Mandated Reporter and Background Screenings.
If minor is 15 years of age or younger, Assistant Vice President for Human Resources will also review volunteer applicant and approve activity.
Once all of the above departments have provided signature approvals, the minor volunteer and parent/guardian will receive the Minor Volunteer Questionnaire and the Minor Volunteer Packet for review and required signatures.
Step 2: Minor Volunteer Packet
The packet will include the following documents:
Minor Volunteer Data Sheet - The data sheet includes required personal information that will be used to set up the volunteer record and generate a UID.
