Girl Scouts of North East Ohio is committed to providing a safe
and quality program for girls in the community as they participate
in the program. The criminal background check will be another
component of Girl Scouts of North East Ohio's volunteer placement
procedure. The background check, conducted by Intellicorp Systems,
includes criminal records searches of convictions, arrests, court
records, inmate records, and sex offender registries.
Girl Scouts of North East Ohio has an expectation that
volunteers who will be serving in the following volunteer positions
will complete a background check:
The decision to exclude or limit an individual's participation
as a volunteer is solely with the discretion of Girl Scouts of
North East Ohio. Factors to be considered include, but are not
limited to, the nature and severity of the crime, and the length of
time since the criminal conduct occurred.
The Girl Scouts of North East Ohio will maintain the
confidentiality of all criminal background information, including
information regarding disqualification decisions.
