To ensure the safety of our wish kids, we perform a national criminal background check on applicants interested in most volunteer positions. We perform this background check through First Advantage.
The cost of each background check can vary and is dependent upon where you have previously resided. We do ask that the volunteer cover this cost which is typically about $25. You must be 18 years or older to volunteer in a position that requires a background check.
All information in the volunteer application, and any acquired through the background check, remains confidential and is used only for screening and placement purposes.
If a blemish appears on a background check it may be reviewed by our management team to determine if acceptance of a volunteer application is in the Chapter's best interest.
