Background Check Solutions designed for Recreational Volunteers

Every year, tens of thousands of volunteers serve parks & recreation centers to give back to the community with their expertise and commitment to serve. Volunteers of all different ages and backgrounds come together to offer better volunteer services supporting a variety of excellent programs and special events.

Some of those activities include improving the life of a child through recreation, community beautification projects, helping to restore a native environment or improve wildlife habitats, assisting people with disabilities so they can take part in recreation activities and special events, escorting children and/or seniors on day trips, helping educate the public by leading historical, and educational tours of parks and preserves, and many other activities.

Just as with youth sports, these activities can be safer when volunteers are screened properly by a professional background check firm like Protect Youth Sports.

Volunteer Background Checks through industry expert Protect Youth Sports are designed to help recreational facilities and organizations implement and maintain a thorough background screening process and child abuse prevention program for volunteers, staff and employees.

Protect Youth Sports has established a very firm and reputable standing within the volunteer community, with a proven history of serving over 30,000 youth-serving organizations..

BASIC Package Search

This is a package including the following:

  • SSN Verification and Address History
  • National Criminal Database Search
  • National Sex Offender Search
  • Re-verification of criminal records
  • Alias Names

The SSN search validates the SSN that a particular applicant provides. The SSN search is vital to verifying the identity of an individual, alias names and any previous addresses. All alias names found are searched on the national database and sex offender registries, in addition to the applicant name provided.

The National Criminal Database search has the potential to identify certain crimes that may have occurred outside any addresses found on the SSN search. The national search is not recommended as a stand-alone service in every state due to the limitations of the data being queried.

The sex offender search will identify if an applicant is listed on a particular sex offender registry. The sex offender search is critical to identifying any prior sex offenses.

All hits found on the national database and sex offender registries are re-verified for accuracy in compliance with the FCRA.

PLUS Package Search

This is a package including the following:

  • SSN Verification and Address History
  • National Criminal Database Search
  • National Sex Offender Search
  • Re-verification of criminal records
  • Alias names
  • (1) county or statewide criminal court search (plus mandatory fees)

The PLUS includes everything in the BASIC Package search, plus:

The criminal court search is a name check for any criminal history (felony and misdemeanors where available), at the county or state level. Due to the fact that a majority of crimes occur within the jurisdiction of an individual’s home address, the county criminal search or statewide criminal search should be ordered based on the most current address history of the applicant, or the address with the longest residence within the past 7 years.

All services ordered should be related to the actual job descriptions and functions of the particular applicant’s job.
