What does CoachArt look for in a background check?
CoachArt runs a national criminal file search to verify that a prospective volunteer has no prior criminal convictions, is not a sex offender and does not have any outstanding warrants for arrest. The background checks we conduct through Sterling Volunteers include ID confirmation and Advanced Criminal History Record Locator Search, which consists of Government Watch List Search, OFAC, DOJ Sex Offender, County Criminal Search, Current County Residence Search, Nationwide Search, and Social Security Trace. This background check must be cleared before a volunteer is matched in a lesson with a CoachArt kid. Information related to a volunteer’s employment or credit history does not appear.
