<![CDATA[Background Checks for all Volunteers due August 31]]> http://girlscouts.legacy-web-6.getliveedit.com/Blog/Region-1-Volunteer-Update/Background-Checks-for-all-Volunteers-due-August-31/

Background checks are required for all volunteers.  If you have recently completed your background check for Lakes and Pines, thank you.  It only took a few minutes and we appreciate your doing it.  That's our best step to make sure that all of our girls and volunteers are kept safe.

If you have completed your backgrouond check by going online to our Lakes and Pines website in the past year (or getting a 7 page paper copy with the same information - offered for those without internet access) you will not have to complete a background check again until 3 years from the date of your first one. 

Just an FYI - if you have done a background check for your employer or another organization, you still need to complete the Girl Scout one. 

Still wondering if you have completed a background check with us?  A simple clue is that you had to enter your social security number. 

Our goal is to have all volunteers complete their background check before school starts.  We have budgeted to pay for yours, so please take a few minutes and go to https://gslakesandpines.volunteerportal.net/  The password is juliette1912.

Questions can be directed to Denise at dpaulisich@gslakesandpines.org or 218-208-0236 or Martha at mlivingston@gslakesandpines.org or 218-302-3186.
