To get started, please submit a completed interest form to let us know you're interested in joining the FSS Program. Once our FSS Coordinator receives your interest form, you will be invited to attend a virtual orientation. At the orientation, you will have an opportunity to speak to the FSS Coordinator to determine if the program is the right fit for you. Once you've completed your orientation, if you choose to move forward with the FSS Program you will have a scheduled one-on-one meeting with the Coordinator to develop your goals and review the contract of participation.
