Adult Application Criminal Background Check Updates

You are here:
Starting from March 4th, 2024, the Adult Volunteer Application Process will undergo significant changes to enhance the safety measures and ensure thorough background checks. The changes are as follows:
  1. Criminal Background Check (CBC) Requirement: All new adult volunteers must have the results of their CBC received and cleared before assuming any leadership role.
  2. Pending Status Notification: Once an application is processed, the applicant will be placed in a “pending” status and receive an email notification. The notification will emphasize that the individual must not assume any leadership role until the CBC process is complete. The unit key 3 will also receive an email regarding the status.
  3. Activation Notification: Upon satisfactory CBC results, an email will be sent to both the applicant and the unit key 3, indicating that the applicant is now cleared to become an active leader.
