Volunteer Screening Becoming More Important

Saturday, September 27th, 2008

Most volunteer organizations face a difficult situation with the volunteer screening issue.  Often critically lacking in funding, finding a way to effectively screen the often large numbers of volunteers can seem overwhelming.

Unfortunately, the risk of not screening volunteers is becoming more costly as well. If a volunteer steals, sues, or harms another person while working on the premises of the organization, the financial costs can be huge.

Another important consideration is the serious cost to the safety and credibility of the organization itself.

Effective volunteer screening is important insurance for every volunteer organization!
