Staff and volunteer screening and hiring practices should include criminal background checks. However, there is much confusion about the kinds of background checks (criminal and non-criminal) that are available to youth-serving organizations. The proliferation of "quick, cheap and easy background checks" from on-line services confuses the issues when you consider that there is not a nation-wide database of all criminal histories. This course will dispel the myths and make sense of the realities of what is available to you as an organization that selects staff and volunteers to serve children, youth, and vulnerable adults.
