Verified Volunteers is our third-party organization, who conducts screening/background checks and provides educational services for North America.Verified Volunteers is dedicated to raising awareness and prevention of the mistreatment of the vulnerable. They work hard to accomplish this goal by training young people and adults about abuse, neglect, predators, bullying, boundaries, respect, and the perils of cyberspace.
The Northern California Conference of Seventh-day Adventists and its churches and schools do volunteer background checks through the Verified Volunteers program. (Please note: This is a replacement program for Shield the Vulnerable and the Adventist Church no longer uses that program.)
To start your training and background check, please click here to be directed to the Verified Volunteers website. You will be given the option to sign up as a first-time registrant or to log back in.
