The YC (Youth Camp) Volunteer Background Template is available free to download, customize and print for your camp preparation...
The Youth Camp Volunteer Background Check form or template below is a great tool and may I point out a very important tool in your Youth Camp paperwork process that does not need to be excluded if at all possible.
One of the biggest mistakes you can make in your hiring process is skipping the background and reference checks on your potential church employee especially if they are going to be working with children.
A reference check is an opportunity to protect your youth camp, church and/or organization and also to help get to know to your potential church employee.
Information from your church background check reports should be made available to all the decision makers before the final hiring process. If the report comes back cleared and positive then great, but if you have any questions through the reference and background checks then you need to continue conversations with your potential new hire in an effort to get clarity on these questions.
There is a misconception of doing background checks on church employees in that they are done to "dig up dirt" on a potential employee, but this is not the case. The background check process is intended to get you to know your potential church employee better and gain clarity on whether they could be a good fit for your church team or not.
The free template for Volunteer Background Checks - Authorization and Consent below is a one page form that includes:
You can find free background checks or you have the choice to pay for the background check services. The paid background services go into a more extensive screening depending on your organization or company. Most big organizations or big businesses use these paid services on a regular basis.Click on the link to download the Background Template below:
