For some events and some organizations working with children and teens, volunteers need to get a background check done. Please note that the information within this template will change as we learn more about background checks and when they are needed.
Kurt's notes from his background check experience:
- Verified Volunteers does background checks for volunteer organizations. I'm not sure what their regular fee is, but I only had to pay $2.50 for the one through USFIRST for the FIRST Robotics Competition.
- They also offer a "Fast-Pass" which let's you share your credentials with an unlimited number of organizations for a year until you have to go through another screening.
- I've enquired as to what legal requirements are covered and cost of services. This is for information only.
