Proof of Insurance
Individuals are to secure travel insurance as well as accidental death and dismemberment insurance to cover the event of illness or major catastrophe on the project. The travel insurance would include coverage for medical expenses and medical repatriation. There are different options to acquire this insurance:
1. Your local church. Once your local church has voted to support an individual or group, it is possible to secure the insurance provided through Adventist Risk Management at a reasonable rate (www.hesaidgo.net).
2. The local mission. The local mission where the AFM project exists could approve the work project making it possible to obtain insurance through Adventist Risk Management.
3. Personal insurance. If these options are not possible, you may need to acquire personal insurance for this trip.
You may scan and email your proof of insurance to firstname.lastname@example.org or upload it below.
Upload your Proof of Insurance:
Please attach a scanned copy of your proof of insurance.
You will only need to sign one of these documents.

By this electronic signature, I am indicating that I have completely watched the on-line training, I have not shared or received answers to this quiz with others, and agree to protect any and all children I may come in contact with while volunteering with Adventist Frontier Missions.
A background check is required of all volunteers as part of AFM’s Child Protection Policy.
Please fill out the corresponding form for this purpose. AFM will then complete a national background check for each volunteer.
Note: If you are not currently living in the United States or a U.S. citizen, you will need to complete a background check as provided for in your own country and submit this (a clearly readable scanned copy emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org or uploaded here).
Upload your background check form:
AFM requires three (3) non-family references. Please share the reference form with your desired references which they will submit directly to AFM's HR Director.
