Volunteer Background Check Authorization

We will demand background checks for our volunteers working directly with children in order to ensure a safe environment for your kids and our staff. In light of what has been occurring in schools across the country, we have implemented this policy. Chaperoning, driving on field trips, becoming a room mom, or being a teacher’s assistant are just a few examples of working with children. Generally through a program called Protect My Ministry, we are able to perform a background investigation. Overall please submit this form to the office of the school.

The Social Security Administration, and any of their officers, employees, representatives, or assigned agencies, individually and collectively, from any and all liability for any damages of any kind that may, at any time, result to me, my heirs, family, or associates due to the execution of this authorization and request to release.
