Volunteer Background Screening
There are some types of businesses and organizations that make regular use of community volunteers. In the healthcare industry, for example, there are numerous opportunities for people to come in and volunteer their time, whether it’s for something as simple as talking with patients and keeping them company, or with providing relief during disaster situations.
Any time an organization brings in volunteers, it’s critical that they can be certain these volunteers are trustworthy, especially in circumstances in which those volunteers will be working with already-vulnerable people. This is where volunteer background checks come in.

Frequently Asked Questions
Here are a few of the questions we most commonly receive about our volunteer background checks:
We covered most of the biggest benefits of volunteer background checks above, but it’s worth reiterating that background checks for your volunteers go beyond just giving you some additional peace of mind that you’re working with trustworthy people. They also help you to maintain compliance with any regulations mandating background checks for volunteers, and to protect the reputation of your organization.
Generally a volunteer background check will take anywhere from 24 to 72 hours, though if the screening does reveal criminal information or if the volunteer has lived in multiple jurisdictions within the last few years the screening may take slightly longer to complete.
Volunteer background checks look for many of the same things employment background checks look for. The analysts run a Social Security Number (SSN0 to verify its validity, and then can perform county criminal records searches to determine if the volunteer applicant has any felonies or misdemeanors on their record. The checks also include determining if the applicant is on the national sex offender registry or the adult abuse registry, as well as, in some cases, checks of an applicant’s motor vehicle records.
