In the interest of Malachi Center clients who are part of a vulnerable population, MC requires volunteers to submit to a screening process. At any point while volunteering, MC staff reserves the right to ask any volunteer exhibiting any inappropriate behavior to discontinue volunteering and leave the premises. MC staff also reserves the right to ask any volunteer to re-submit to a background check if they deem it appropriate.
It is the policy of Malachi Center that each applicant for a volunteer position will complete a brief screening procedure. At a minimum, the following procedures are required for new volunteer applicants. Program staff must ensure that each applicant completes these established minimum procedures.
MC acknowledges the right of volunteers to request a copy of their background check once it is complete. Personal information will not be shared with anyone beyond the volunteer giving the information and MC staff. Personal information collected by the MC will be filed in a secure location and/or on a password protected secure database and will not be shared with outside parties. Documentation of the screening process must be maintained for each applicant and placed in confidential files.
