Step 2 - Background Check - Loving Community & Mentor America

Certain volunteer positions require a criminal background check. These roles are most often when working with children and senior adults. This applies to volunteers over the age of 18.

If you are volunteering  with children or senior adults you are required to complete a criminal background check. Background checks are confidentially conducted by the nationally known and high respected organization Checkr.

Once you complete your volunteer application in Step 1 via VOMO we will send you a link to complete you background check.

Also, organizations are not allowed to share criminal background check information with other organizations or agencies. For this reason often you may be required to complete more than one background check.
