Inspire Northward is proud to make it possible for students and adult career seekers to explore real careers with real professionals and employers. In order to ensure the safety and privacy of our users, all participating businesses and career coach volunteers must successfully pass a 7 year criminal background check, a State Sexual Offender check, and agree to abide by the Inspire Northward Terms and Conditions. Upon completion of this form, we will conduct a criminal history and sexual offender check. All results are confidential and will be shared only with you. Please note that in order to participate in Inspire Northward, businesses will be charged a nominal fee of $5.00 per background check._________________________________________________________________________________________________

Once your background check is complete, we will build your profile in the system using the information you provide in this form. If for some reason we are not able to activate you as a career coach based on results of the background checks, we will notify you and include the reason why. If you don't require a background check, then we'll build your profile without one but you won't have access to some of Inspire’s most powerful tools. Others in your organization can sign up for any of the activities that require a background check under your company name, however.
When your profile is ready (allow up to 14 business days) you will receive an email notification with log in instructions so that you can view the profile. During this time, our staff may contact you for more information about your business to ensure that a robust profile is developed for your organization. Remember, you can make changes to your profile anytime you'd like. In addition, once your company is active in the system, other employees can register as "Career Coaches" by clicking on https://www.inspirenorthward.org/employers-careercoaches/ and then clicking on "Register Today to become a Career Coach!" button.
Please don't hesitate to contact us at any time, with any questions or concerns. Our staff is here to help you make this a rewarding experience for both you and our partner schools/students!
