We're honored to be a part of your children's education and growth. You trust us with your kids, and we don't take it lightly. So, safety is of the utmost importance - volunteers and staff undergo a number of background checks and documentation verification processes including, but not limited to:

  • PA Child Abuse Clearance (every 3 years)

  • FBI Documentation

  • FBI Fingerprint clearance check (every 3 years) 

  • Background Check Authorization form – The Background Screening Authorization is completed yearly, and Human Resources runs additional national background checks as recommended by the Boys and Girls Club of America.  

  • These are updated yearly as well: First Advantage, National Sex Offender (NSO) and PATCH (Pennsylvania Access to Criminal History-State Police)

  • Disclosure Statement Application for Employment, Including Provisional Employment Required by the Child Protective Service Law 

  • ACT 31 Mandated Reporter Training 


Also, we not only conduct safety checks throughout the year, but also emotional checks to ensure that all kids participating in Sarah Heinz House Association programs are given the attention and support they need to excel.
