Adults, 18 and older must complete a criminal background screening before final approval is granted.
Currently, Volunteer Services conducts the following screenings:
- Nationwide Criminal Record Locator Search
- Social Security Trace (if applicable)
- 50 State Department of Justice Registered Sex Offender Search
Following the face-to-face interview and recommendation for final approval from the project supervisor, Volunteer Services initiates the online screening and provides instructions via email.
The email contains steps to Register and Start Your Order. Applicants can monitor the screening process and receive the completed report.
Applicants must provide the following information to begin the screening:
Username - create a new username to access your screening report
Email - provide a valid email address to receive notifications
Password - create a unique password for the account (should not be your Volunteer Connect or library password)
Applicants should follow all instructions for each section. Screenings are conducted at no cost to the individual. Once completed, results are available within 24-72 hours.
Upon review and clearance, applicants (and staff) are notified by Volunteer Services.
