Clearances for working with children and youth

All adult volunteers need to have THREE current documents on file at New Hanover to gain clearance to work with children and youth.  All must have been completed within the last three years:

  • A criminal background check through the Pennsylvania Access To Criminal History (P.A.T.C.H.) website
  • Child abuse clearance through the Child Welfare Information Solution (CWIS) website
  • Either Act 153 notarized affidavit (for residents of Pennsylvania for all of the past 10 years) or an FBI background check (fingerprinting)
