Screening practices begin when an organization creates a new position. It is an ongoing process used to select volunteers for specific roles, and it should continue as long as a volunteer is involved with the organization. The 10 Steps of Screening give clear guidelines for developing screening policies. These policies show an organization’s commitment to safe and meaningful volunteer engagement.
