Background Check

We do conduct both initial and annual background screenings. A conviction does not necessarily disqualify an applicant. Failure to disclose may result in disqualification or termination.

I understand volunteers are prohibited from being “Friends” on Facebook, or “Followers” on Twitter, or engaging in any other kind of personal relationship via social media outlets with Club members under the age of 18.
Consent

Health and Safety

I understand that, in participating in the Boys & Girls Clubs of the Western Reserve (“the Club”) Volunteer Program, I/my child will be exposed to the normal risks of a Club visitor or staff member.

 

I understand and agree that I waive for myself, my child and any heirs any and all claims including any negligence claims which I or my child might have against the Club, or its agents or representatives, in any way arising from or relating to the Volunteer Program, except for claims arising out of the gross negligence or reckless or willful misconduct of the Club or its agents, or representatives. I hereby agree that I will not sue the Club on behalf of myself or my child, nor will my child sue on his/her own behalf, and release the Club from any claims I/my child, may have against it except for gross negligence or willful or reckless misconduct on the part of the Club, its trustees, officers, agents and employees.

 

Background Check

I authorize the Club to use all legal means at its disposal to assess my suitability for volunteerism including obtaining a "consumer report" (criminal background record check) about me from a "consumer reporting agency" and consider such reports when making decisions about my volunteer application. I understand and agree that the Club or any agent acting upon their behalf, as well as any other person responding to a reference request pursuant to this application, can and will seek and/or disclose any and all information about me which said corporation, agent, or person may have. I specifically authorize said disclosure and agree to hold such corporations, agents, or persons harmless for same. That is, I will not file a lawsuit, claim or charge against them for such disclosure. Nor will I threaten same or otherwise seek any kind of compensation for such disclosure. I further release the Club, its officers, partners, affiliate agents and assigns from all liability or damages caused by inquiries regarding statements made in any "consumer report" accessed by the Club. I also understand and agree that the criminal background check may include a fingerprinting requirement and drug screening.
