The Jeremiah Project desires a safe environment for all children and youth. To that end, the Jeremiah Project performs background checks on its entire staff that are 18 years and older. The Jeremiah Project also requires that each Team Leader complete a thorough background check before attending a Summer Serve Week.
Background checks for each adult leader should include – at a minimum – the following:
State Criminal History
Federal Criminal History
National Criminal Sex Offender Registry (OFAC)
These background checks must be completed through an reliable and trustworthy agency. Team Leaders are responsible for all costs associated with performing the aforementioned background checks. We recommend that these background checks be completed through a reputable professional service provider such as the ones suggested below.
ScreeningOne - https://vaumc.org/next-gen-safe-sanctuaries
In partnership with the Virginia Conference (UMC) and Safe Sanctuaries

Team Leaders must provide confirmation or a copy of their completed background check by June 15 to JP's Project Assistant firstname.lastname@example.org.
Adult leaders must have had a successful background check performed within the last five years.
