The Pennsylvania State Legislature has passed a law that all persons having repetitive contact with children must have the following clearances; Criminal History from the Pennsylvania State Police; and Child Abuse History Clearance from the Department of Human Services.
All Managers and Coaches must submit a background check and obtain the following certifications:
1) Report of Criminal History from the PA State Police (PSP)
2) Child Abuse History Certification from the Department of Human Services (Child Abuse)
The PA clearances are free for volunteers and are good for 60 months (5 years). The Commonwealth will waive payment for volunteer clearances every 57 months. For more information concerning the background checks please visit:
Because you are a volunteer you do not have to pay for a background check.
