All of our Crisis Counselors are required to undergo a background check. Thus, we ask our applicants to agree to completing a background check in their volunteer application. In order to complete the background check you will also need to provide your US Social Security Number.
Our background checks are run through a third-party, Checkr, that is accredited by the National Association of Professional Background Screeners. Since we use a third-party company for our background checks, we do not have access to the report itself or your Social Security Number.
If you have any questions about this let us know by contacting firstname.lastname@example.org.
