Background Check

The safety of our girls is of utmost importance, so GSOSW members who plan to volunteer in the following capacities must complete a background check:

  • Any person who will have direct contact with girls.
  • Any volunteer with financial responsibility.
  • All service team members.

Additionally, all persons 18 years or older who reside at a residence where meetings or events occur must have a current GSOSW background check.

Not a current member of Girl Scouts? Start here to join Girl Scouts and submit your background check! If you are a current member in need of your first background check or if you're renewing an expiring background check, read on!
