Proper Screening & Criminal Background Checks

Institutions should conduct background investigations and appropriate screening of all staff and volunteers working in programs for non-student minors in accordance with the USG Human Resources Administrative Practice Manual:

HRAP Background Investigations

Personnel in charge of screening volunteers should be aware of the inherent limitations of background checks and should seek to utilize other screening methods in addition to background checks when possible, to include in-person interviews and reference checks.
