What's New

Volunteers Screening Guidelines

Effective October 1, 2015, Suffolk VCE 4-H volunteers will undergo background screening through our new vendor, PreSearch Background Services. Volunteer screening supports the process of educating volunteer applicants about Virginia Cooperative Extension programs and creates the opportunity to allow faculty and staff to learn more about the interests of the volunteer applicant. The screening process also helps to protect the well-being of Virginia Cooperative Extension programs, its participants, and volunteers. To view the Volunteers Guidelines Brochure click here.
