-- Consent / Release --
Girl Scouts San Diego's core values include the safety of girls, volunteers and staff. To continue this practice, we have contracted with ASURINT to conduct background checks on volunteers who are supervising girls and handling finances. This includes troop leaders, troop assistant leaders, troop co-leaders, service unit team, troop treasurers, troop cookie coordinators and fall product coordinators. As a potential volunteer, we ask that you agree to the following in authorizing a background check by Girl Scouts San Diego:
I hereby consent and voluntarily authorize Girl Scouts San Diego to obtain an independent criminal background report, motor vehicle report and Social Security Number validation report, if applicable. I further authorize said council to request or receive information, including past employment and education records, and/or references from any persons, schools, or previous employers only if pertinent to my potential work as a volunteer.
If you have any questions regarding this process, please contact our volunteer services team at email@example.com or (619) 610-0821.
