Background Screening by Verified Volunteers
It is important to know that NFTE requires volunteers who serve in positions that have direct contact with young people (e.g., the Business Plan Coaching & Mentoring roles), to submit a background check. Therefore, before individuals can begin volunteer service, they must agree to a background check and have satisfactory results.
Once you have completed the volunteer application, will have the ability to submit the appropriate background check for your region from within your account. Please keep in mind that background checks typically take 2-3 business days to process and must be complete prior to your volunteer session.
