Background checks for Kiwanis advisors

The security of the members of Kiwanis' Service Leadership Programs is paramount. For that reason, each Kiwanis-club advisor to each SLP club must a have a clear criminal history background check.

Here are a few suggestions for obtaining these background checks:

  • Check with the school or organization that hosts the Service Leadership club, program or activity. The cost will be determined by that school or organization. Some offer background checks for free.
  • Obtain an individual's background check through Safe Hiring Solutions. That cost begins at $19.95 but could include additional fees based on where the applicant resides or has resided in the past.
  • Connect with your local government office, police station or other vendor/provider of background checks.
