Dear Prospective Volunteer:
Thank you for your interest in volunteering with the Boys & Girls Club of Southwest Missouri. With your help, we can strengthen existing programs, add new programs, and extend them to more boys and girls. Our emphasis is on providing wholesome activities supervised by adults of high moral character. Because the risk, no matter how remote, of exploitation or abuse of our boy and girls club members is unacceptable, we are required to secure your consent for a background check and examine all references. Thank you for your understanding of both the need and the time (approximately 2 weeks) it will take to process your placement.
