Screening and Background Checks of Staff, Volunteers and Interns
It is the policy of the Iroquois- Kankakee ROE Teen REACH Program that all staff and adult volunteers and interns who have one-on-one contact with children and youth in the programs must have a background check completed and the result of each background check placed in their personnel file at the Teen REACH program site.
- Each applicant must submit a written application, a disclosure statement and references. Each applicant is required to give written consent for the Teen REACH program to obtain Illinois State Police criminal background checks and a DCFS CANTS report (No person will be hired or allowed to serve in the capacity of a volunteer or intern without this written consent).
- Each applicant for a Teen REACH position is hired through a comprehensive personal interview.
- The results of the Illinois State Police Criminal Background check and the DCFS CANTS reports will be kept in the employee, volunteer or intern file at the Teen REACH program.
