We have improved our volunteer screening process. Now volunteers will move directly from Online Registration to Online Background Screening, simplifying the volunteer enrollment process while ensuring that volunteers are carefully screened.
The following Girl Scout volunteers will be asked to complete a background check every two years:
- Troop Leaders
- Troop Chaperones
- Troop Treasurers
- Troop Product Sales Coordinators
If you are a new or current volunteer, please complete an adult registration. Be sure to check "I want to join as a Volunteer." If you do not see a troop listed when you search, please click Unsure and a box will pop up where you can type in the level and school of the troop you are leading.
You will then receive a Background Check Request from the vendor Asurint from the email address email@example.com. Follow the link provided in the email to fill out the background check. (It is not mandatory to attach any supporting documentation, skip that step). If you did a background check within the previous two years, you will not be asked to complete a new one until the current one expires.
Once the background check has been completed, you will be sent an email to view a Welcome Video and answer a few review questions. Volunteers who are applying to be Troop Leaders will then receive an email (usually within 7 days) with a list of orientation/interview sessions to attend. Applicants can attend the session most convenient to them and will be ready to complete the remaining required trainings, which are listed below.
