Please list in the above text box the names, phone numbers and email addresses of three people not related to you who can judge your qualifications for this volunteer position (e.g., teachers, community leaders, business associates, ministers, principals, other SAFEchild volunteers). WE WILL CHECK REFERENCES. We will also conduct a background check, and will do so once a year as long as you are a SAFEchild volunteer. Thank you!
We request the above information because of our dedication and commitment to the children under our protection. It is not requested as a violation of your privacy, nor because we hold any blanket suspicion of prospective volunteers. All youth-serving organizations must take reasonable precautions in selecting those who work directly with our children. This is a necessity in today's world and we would be remiss not to carry out this responsibility. We will keep this information confidential. It is for your protection as well as our participants' peace of mind.
