Background Screening

Mentoring USA's Mentors work with children. Therefore, we are required to screen our volunteers. Please respond to the following questions. Be aware that further screening paperwork as well as fingerprinting along with our mentor contract will be completed by all mentors at our Best Practices Training.

Mentoring USA allows applicants to disclose a criminal record during the application process. Having a criminal history does not preclude an individual from mentoring, however if it is not truthfully disclosed he/she will be considered ineligible to mentor. For further information please review our Screening Process(:Link to Screening Process)

Have you ever been charged/indicted for any crime? *
