Criminal Record Checks – Screening Tools that Support Your Volunteer Selection Process
Criminal Record Checks are a pivotal tool in determining a volunteer’s suitability for your organization and the various volunteer roles needed to support your vulnerable community members. This workshop will help you explore how criminal record checks can be completed, where they fit into your overall screening process, and what the results might mean for your volunteers and your recruitment strategies.
