There is potential that the resultant data will indicate an individual's prior felony and/or misdemeanor convictions. Prior convictions will be reviewed on a case-by-case basis, but some convictions are cause for immediate disqualification from volunteer services with Children's Dance Theater Foundation for communicating with a minor for immoral purposes, crimes with a minor victim, and any sexual motivation convictions are all an automatic bar.
In connection with my volunteer services, I hereby authorize Children's Dance Theater Foundation to conduct a criminal background check on my behalf. I understand that this check will cover a search of law enforcement and court records and a check of the National Sex Offender Public Registry. I understand that my ability to volunteer with Children's Dance Theater Foundation is contingent upon the results of the background check. I understand that failure on my part to consent to the criminal background check will result in the revocation of any volunteer position available to me. The information contained in this volunteer form is correct to the best of my knowledge. I hereby authorize Children's Dance Theater Foundation, and its designated agents and representatives to conduct a comprehensive review of my background causing a consumer report and/or investigative report to be generated for employment and/or volunteer purposes. I understand that the scope of the report may include, but is not limited to the following areas: criminal and civil history records from any criminal justice agency in any or all federal, state, county jurisdictions; driving records; and any other public records. I hereby release Children's Dance Theater Foundation, and its agents, officials, representatives, or assigned agencies, including officers, employees, or related personnel both individually and collectively, from any and all liability for damages of whatever kind, which may, at any time, result to me, my heirs, family, or associates because of compliance with this authorization and request to release. I certify that the information provided on this form is truthful and accurate to the best of my knowledge. I understand that knowingly providing false information or omitting information may result in my disqualification or termination of volunteer services with Children's Dance Theater Foundation.
