Volunteer Background Screening

Girl Scouts Heart of the South requires background screening for the following:
  • Any adult handling troop or service unit funds and/or product sales
  • Any adult fulfilling girl/adult ratio, which includes all leaders, co-leaders, and assistant leaders, as well as any other adult serving as part of that ratio
  • Any adult serving as a driver, chaperone, or serving as the first aider for the troop/service unit
  • Any adult staying overnight in a volunteer capacity, participating in a high-risk activity, or a trip over 200 miles with Girl Scouts

Girl Scouts Heart of the South will require updated a background check every two years for current volunteers.

The cost of the background check is $8, which may be paid using any major credit card. If you would like to be reimbursed by the associated troop or service unit, the cost is an approved Girl Scout expense.
