Criminal Background Checks for Leaders to be Completed
Criminal Background Checks: An Update
As dedicated BSA volunteers, you understand the importance of keeping our youth safe in the Scouting program. To ensure Youth Protection, our organization has conducted criminal background checks on all volunteers since April 2003.
The federal Fair Credit Reporting Act mandates that organizations must have a signed authorization from the individual to conduct a CBC.
Note: The Boy Scouts of America’s criminal background procedures fall under the federal Fair Credit Reporting Act. The checks conducted on our behalf by our vendor report criminal activitynot credit or financial historyon an individual.
