Employment Reference Form


Candidates may not be employed until we have at least two references on file:

  1. A reference from from the candidate's most recent employer in work relevant to CTY.
  2. A reference from an employer who has supervised the candidate's work experience with children.

There are two methods for completing an employment reference. You may either print a reference form and have your referrer complete it by hand, or fill have the referrer fill out the form using a keyboard. You may download a reference form below.

If possible, you should upload your completed reference forms at the time you submit your application and resume. Otherwise, please complete the application and, as soon as possible, email your transcript(s) and Employment Reference Forms to or fax them to 866-345-3731.
