Announcement:  On May 6th, the Pennsylvania Dutch Council will require online submissions of background clearances.  This is intended to replace having each unit collect all of their clearances and submit paper copies.  Applicants will upload all three of the required clearances and will receive an email once their clearances have been accepted.  The applicant will simply print that email and include it with his or her adult application, signed disclosure form, and proof of Youth Protection Training.  Read below for more information. 

For youth-serving organizations in Pennsylvania, background clearance requirements have been enacted that need to be completed before volunteer work with youth in Pennsylvania.  Please see the information listed below for information about these background clearances and what is required.
