The AmeriCorps application process requires a criminal history check to ensure community members with whom we work are protected, particularly children, individuals with disabilities, and individuals over 60 years old. We are investigating for past sexual offenses and violent crimes, or crime that would have a direct bearing on your service. This background check will entail our search of the National Sex Offenders Registry and an FBI Criminal History Check, which will require your being fingerprinted prior to pre-service orientation. You will not be permitted to serve or work with children, individuals with disabilities, or individuals over 60 years of age, without supervision until the history check is complete and you are cleared. The review process is not lengthy, and normally is completed within weeks. Answer the following questions fully. Existence of a criminal conviction or juvenile adjudication may or may not, depending on the circumstances, disqualify you from consideration. However, any intentional misrepresentation or omission will disqualify you. Do not include minor traffic violations.
