At the heart of every church or ministry you’ll find faithful volunteers.
When recruiting volunteers, it’s important to think about maintaining a safe and secure environment. The reputation of all involved depends upon it! That’s why background checks should be an important part of the volunteer process. No organization can afford the risks that come with not performing background screenings on volunteers. Kingdom is excited to introduce you to Verified Volunteers – the only background screening program designed for volunteer organizations.
Verified Volunteers performs background checks for churches, ministries and other religious organizations that are affordable, accurate, and fast. Their goal is to help organizations better fulfill their missions by reducing the time and costs associated with volunteer screening.
Who is Verified Volunteers?
Verified Volunteers is the only background check platform tailored to the specific needs of the service sector and the first online community to mobilize repeat, vetted volunteers.Verified Volunteers is backed by SterlingBackcheck, one of the world’s largest background screening companies, and partnered with Points of Light, the world’s largest organization dedicated to volunteer service.
The Highest Quality Screens Around
Not all background checks are created equal – quality and consistency vary widely. Verified Volunteers’ common volunteer screening “currency” establishes a long sought-after, high quality standard for screening volunteers. They use a sophisticated suite of national, state, and local criminal locator tools to deliver the most accurate information available about your volunteers.
Worried about compliance? Verified Volunteers is the expert in local, state, and federal legislation – so you don’t have to be. Verified Volunteers background checks are housed in a completely secure environment and are fully FCRA compliant.
Monthly Updates and Alerts
Volunteer information is updated for you free of charge each month for the first year so you have the added security of monitoring your volunteers for new criminal records. Best part? You get added peace of mind.
A Volunteer-Driven Screening Process
Verified Volunteers takes the burden off of you by putting volunteers in charge of their own screening. They order their check online and they can own and control a copy of their background check in secure volunteer accounts and profiles. Of course, if you want to enter the volunteer data on your own, you can. Verified Volunteers will provide you with all the necessary forms to keep you compliant.
The Volunteer-Fast Pass: A Portable Background Check
Volunteers often give their time and talent to more than one organization. So Verified Volunteers created the Volunteer Fast-Pass, which lets vetted volunteers share their existing background checks with your organization at no cost to you. You can also earn rebates when a background check you originally paid for is shared.
Flexible Payment Options and Contributions
With Verified Volunteers, you can have the volunteer pay for none, all, or some of their background check. The choice is yours. If your organization is paying for any portion of the check, you can also ask your volunteers to optionally contribute towards the cost of their check.
