Do you consent to a background check? *
Washington State law requires us to conduct background checks on volunteers who will or may have unsupervised access to vulnerable individuals. We may not accept volunteers who have been convicted of a crime under this law. Our volunteers work in a variety of different programs that may bring them into contact with these individuals; therefore, it is a requirement that every volunteer provide the necessary information to conduct the background check. Your application, any additional information you provide, and the results of the background check are kept confidential. We will contact you with the results if there is a conviction result. If you do not hear from us, there is no result but you may check in with us at any time to inquire. The record information is furnished solely on the basis of name and/or description similarity with the applicant of inquiry. If necessary, we may ask for a fingerprint for positive identification or non-identification.
