Clearances

All of our youth advisors need to have state and federal clearances in order to help with Lutheran Youth of Faith (LYF). In order to become a counselor at confirmation camp, counselor eligible youth must also have their clearances.

How To Get Your Clearances

In order to fill out your clearances, you will need to follow the three links on this page.

Have the following information on hand while filling out your clearances:

  • Social Security Number
  • Current Address and Contact Info
  • The address of everywhere you’ve lived since 1985, and contact information of anyone you have lived with since 1985

IMPORTANT: Save the PDF files you receive upon completing the first two clearances. One will be available immediately, the other will be emailed to you. IT IS VERY IMPORTANT THAT YOU SAVE THESE. If you are filling out your clearances as an LYF advisor, please email a copy of these PDFs to lyfstmarks@gmail.com. The same goes for your FBI Check/affidavit. If these clearances are for another organization, make sure you send the pertinent parties these documents.
