Volunteering with UCCE
New Volunteers need to complete this process:
Fingerprint clearance from the Department of Justice: All UCCE Volunteers (Master Gardener trainees, Master Food Preserver trainees, and 4-H Volunteers) need to be fingerprinted and pass a Department of Justice background check. Each entity requesting your fingerprints has their own reporting number; this is why you must complete this process even if you have been cleared by another organization in the past. Download the form of your county residence and UCCE Program below. If you have lived in California less than 2 years, please mark the FBI box in addition to the DOJ box for the level of service. See Live Scan Instructions for full details. If you have trouble using the form, save it to your computer to complete.

Where to get fingerprinted: Use the information above or you can go to your local police departments, sheriff’s office or public applicant Live Scan sites. You can find a site near you by going to https://oag.ca.gov/fingerprints/locations. You do not need to go to a site in your home county if another site is more convenient.
