-- 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 understand that the preappointment background check requires my full name, date of birth, and if applicable, driver's license number and social security number. I understand that the information I have provided may be verified by contacting persons or organizations listed in the application, or by contacting any person or organization that may have information concerning me.
 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.
 I certify that the entries made by me in this form are true, complete, and accurate to the best of my knowledge, and are made in good faith and voluntarily. I understand that any false statements or answers by me may disqualify me for volunteer services or will be sufficient grounds for termination. Moreover, I understand that failure to complete this form will preclude me from volunteer opportunities with the Girl Scouts San Diego.
 I further understand that I will receive a complete and accurate disclosure of the nature and scope of the background verification, in the event such investigation negatively affects my placement as a volunteer.
