The Pennsylvania Dutch Council requires online submissions of all background clearances.  This is intended to replace having units or individuals collect clearances and submit paper copies.  Applicants will upload all three of the required clearances. Once the online submission is reviewed applicants will be placed on our online clearance list for unit leaders to access. Applicants will only receive an email if they are missing paperwork needed to complete their clearances.  

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.
