Volunteer ScreeningScreening practices begin when an organization creates a new position.

  • Identify relevant legislation which pertains to volunteer management in their own organizations
  • Assess the background information needed for a given volunteer posting
  • Develop policies and procedures related to privacy of volunteers’ personal information
  • Apply the 10 steps of screening in their volunteer management practice
