Criminal History *
The AmeriCorps application process requires a criminal history check to ensure that community members with whom we work are protected, particularly children, individuals with disabilities, and individuals over 60 years old. We will investigate for past sexual offenses and violent crimes, or crimes that would have a direct bearing on your service. This criminal history check requires The Service Collaborative of WNY to search: (1) the National Sex Offenders Registry, (2) New York State Office of Courts Administration (NYS OCA) and if applicable, from a qualified state-wide criminal history search provider for the State in which you reside permanently and/or at the time of this application process, and (3) FBI criminal history check. You will not be permitted to serve or work with children, individuals with disabilities, or individuals over 60 years of age, without supervision until the history check is complete and you are cleared. The review process is not lengthy. The existence of a criminal conviction or juvenile adjudication may or may not, depending on the circumstances, disqualify you from consideration. However, any intentional misrepresentation or omission will disqualify you. Do not include minor traffic violations.
