Volunteer Screening


volunteer-chck-logoFirst Contact HR uses VOLUNTEERCHECK, a first-of-its-kind background screening program designed to afford today's volunteer organizations, such as churches, charities, schools and sports leagues an added measure of protection. The program promotes safety and security by minimizing the chance of a volunteer with an unknown and potentially dangerous background from doing harm to an organization or its workers.

Volunteers in the VOLUNTEERCHECK program are subjected a rigorous background check before they are permitted on the job or engage in the assigned activity. Once screened, volunteers receive an ID badge and the background screening results are posted on the VOLUNTEERCHECK website for the organization to review before any work or activity is begun.

How does the service work?

Each volunteer must be screened and meet the established standards.
Volunteers meeting the established standards are issued an ID badge bearing the worker's digital photo, confirmation number, expiration date and an indication that the badge holder has met the established standards.

The established standards are:
article_bullet No felony convictions, open deferred adjudications or pending criminal trials in jurisdictions checked for crimes involving sex or violence.
article_bullet No felony convictions, open deferred adjudications or pending criminal trials in jurisdictions checked for the past seven (7) years, except for crimes involving sex or violence for which there is no time limit.
article_bullet No misdemeanor convictions, open deferred adjudications or pending criminal trials in jurisdictions checked for crimes involving sex.
article_bullet No misdemeanor convictions, open deferred adjudications or pending criminal trials in jurisdictions checked for the past seven (7) years for crimes involving violence or theft.
article_bullet No records in any public accessible sex offender database, including the child abuse history maintained by the Department of Public Welfare.

Volunteer organizations may enter the worker's confirmation number and view a web page showing worker's name, digital photograph, as well as an indication that the volunteer meets the established standards.
