Our council is committed to providing a safe, high quality program experience for girls. Conducting background checks provides an important safeguard for the girls in our care.
Background check Information
Which positions require a satisfactory background check?
We ask all people who would like to work directly with girls on an ongoing basis, including troop co-leaders, and/or serve as troop or service unit product sales managers to undergo a background check. Some other volunteer positions may also require a background check. You will receive an email if a background check is required for the position you select in the opportunity catalog.
