Background Checks For Service Organizations

Nonprofits and service organizations differ from for-profits in many ways. One example is background screening. Background checks required for service and nonprofit volunteers are quite different from background checks for normal company employees. On top of this, each service organization is different, as are their volunteer needs. And background checks can vary from state to state and from function to function. If your volunteers are working in an office environment and are not in direct contact with children or the public, you may require a different level of background check than an organization whose volunteers are in the field. Sterling Volunteers offers specialty background checks for nonprofits and service organizations working in fields like those below.
