VolunteerPro alongside valued partner, Sterling Volunteers, the only background screening organization designed specifically for nonprofits, are working together to help create safer environments.
To ensure the safety of everyone involved with your organization, it’s important to have a thorough and accurate background screening program in place. Sterling Volunteers provides members with access to quality and compliant background checks for both employees and volunteers, at significantly reduced prices.
The Sterling Volunteers Screening platform allows you to:
Make More Informed Decisions. Background checks are NOT created equal – quality and consistency vary widely. Sterling Volunteers background checks are the most accurate available and include the Department of Justice Sex Offender Registry – the only “real-time” and comprehensive source of sex offender information in the U.S.
Receive Free Monthly Updates. Other checks are “one and done”. Sterling Volunteers are updated free of charge each month for the first year, so you have the added security of monitoring your volunteers for new criminal records – 12 checks for the price of one!
Reduce Your Screening Costs. Preserve your budget by allowing (or requiring) volunteers to pay for all or part of their screening – or asking for an optional contribution. Thanks to volunteer contributions, clients report saving an average of 40% on screening and of those volunteers who contribute, on average, they cover 90% of their background check cost.
Eliminate Administrative Burdens. Sterling Volunteers takes the burden off you by putting volunteers in charge of their own screening. They order their check online in a secure volunteer account/profile and you automatically receive a copy. Of course, if you want to enter the volunteer data on your own, you can.
