Child protection and background checks

The care and protection of children is a top priority….

We require all volunteers ages 18 and older to have FBI background checks and child protections training, no matter what the job type is.

  • For those coming through the IMB, instructions will arrive with the email for the project number; if that information is missing, click the “Child protection” link on this  IMB volunteer resources page.
  • For volunteers coming through partnering organizations, information will be coming through them.  We ask the organizations to send an email confirming that all volunteers 18 and older have had the FBI background checks and equivalent child protection training.
