Member Preferred Pricing for Background Checks

The Youth Sports Collaborative Network (YSCN) has created an important member benefit for its members -- thorough and compliant background checks of staff and volunteers at a special pricing through its partnership with Sterling Volunteers. 

Sterling Volunteers is a trusted resource and the only screening platform tailored to the specific needs of nonprofits.  National nonprofit organizations currently using Sterling Volunteers include Pop Warner, Girl Scouts, YMCA, NCAA, American Youth Soccer Association, CASA and Special Olympics to name just a few.

Sterling Volunteers’ background checks give you the flexibility and reliable security organizations need to protect the children in their sports-based youth development programs.  Screening volunteers and staff has never been more efficient or cost effective.

Sterling Volunteers allows you to:

  • Make More Informed Decisions:  Background checks are NOT created equal – Quality and consistency vary widely. Sterling Volunteers background checks are the most comprehensive and accurate available and include the Department of Justice Sex Offender Registry – the only up-to-date, comprehensive source of sex offender information.
  • Enjoy Peace of Mind with FREE Monthly Updating:  Other checks are “one and done” – Sterling Volunteers  provides updates, at no charge, for one year from the original date of the background check – helping you identify any new crimes that may have been committed.
  • Give Volunteers the Option to Pay:  Preserve your budget by allowing (or requiring) volunteers to pay for all or part of their screening – or asking for an optional contribution. Sterling clients report saving an average of 40% on screening costs thanks to volunteer contributions.
  • Remove the Administrative Burden of Screening: There are 3 easy ways to order background checks - Volunteers can enter their own information online, you can enter individual volunteer information, or you can upload a list of volunteers and send volunteer invitations with just a few clicks.
