BACKGROUND CHECK PROCESS
To ensure that volunteers meet the necessary qualifications to work with our students, CoachArt requires all volunteers to run a background check through Verified Volunteers.
CoachArt is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization with a tight budget. We request that our volunteers pay for their own background check as a way of confirming your commitment to CoachArt’s mission. To process your background check, you will need your social security number and credit card to make a payment of approximately $33.50 (cost varies depending on your county) . If you are asked for a “good deed code,” please use xldyrfz.
Note: If you are an ESPN employee, see below.
Can’t pay the Background Check Fee?
We understand if this fee represents a hardship for you. CoachArt can waive the fee if you can provide a valid explanation for your request. Again, no one is ever turned away for lack of resources; if you need it, please apply for the waiver HERE.
The Background Check fee for ESPN employees is covered! See details here.
