Synopsis

Over the last 10 years, there has been an abundant number of deficiencies identified in the traditional methods utilized to screen volunteers. These deficiencies are falling significantly short of the due diligent employment screening practices, which have placed all volunteer-dependent organizations and their members at serious risk. Addressing the need to upgrade background screening for volunteers can no longer be pushed to the side.

In this session, learn more about this issue and ways to protect your city and youth programs.
