Background checks for youth ministry volunteers are essential to any faith community’s trust and safety program.

Screening new staff and volunteers is considered best practice, especially to provide a safe environment for vulnerable populations such as children and elderly. Screenings help give you a more clear picture of your volunteers’ backgrounds.  Background checks don’t have to be difficult or stressful to implement.

As you think about incorporating background checks into your community program, you’ll want to consider the unique needs and challenges of your organization. We’ve got a great resource available to walk you through the entire process! 

Our friends at Checkr have created The Beginner’s Guide to Background Checks For Faith Communities. This eBook answers some very important questions, like: 

  • Why is it important to conduct background checks on staff and volunteers?
  • What is a background check and what goes into one?
  • How does the process work?
  • What are compliance factors to consider?
