(New York, NY, February 14, 2018) – While each nonprofit organization has different core objectives, most have similar reasons for screening their unpaid workers, according to the third annual Verified Volunteers’ Volunteer Screening Trends and Best Practices Report: 2018.
FORT COLLINS, Colo., Nov. 1, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Verified Volunteers, a Sterling Talent Solution's company, is partnering with National Voluntary Organizations Active in Disaster (NVOAD) to streamline the screening of spontaneous, unaffiliated volunteers (SUVs) and expedite their help in disaster relief efforts. As thousands of volunteers come forward in the wake of devastating Hurricanes Harvey, Irma and Maria to offer their assistance, massive coordination is required to ensure this generous outpouring of support is effectively and rapidly mobilized.
When the national center for education Statistics surveyed schools about security, they found 75 percent of respondents increased their security since the Sandy Hook incident. The incident took place in 2012, when an active shooter invaded an elementary school in Sandy Hook, Conn.., killing 20 students and six adults.
As budgets tighten and other organizational pressures mount, schools are relying more than ever on volunteers. Unfortunately, inconsistent vetting of volunteers can expose your school to unintended risk. While laws and policies regarding background checks for volunteers are different for every state and school district, screening is fast becoming a prerequisite to volunteering at schools.
Join hundreds of your peers and stay up-to-date with the latest in volunteer background screening and volunteer management.
