Sterling Volunteers


All background checks are not created equal. Through a partnership between Hands On Nashville and Sterling Volunteers, your organization can access these benefits:

  • Make informed decisions: Sterling Volunteers background checks include the Department of Justice Sex Offender Registry, the only current and complete source of sex-offender information.
  • Receive free monthly updates: Access updated background checks, free of charge, each month for the first year of Sterling Volunteers' membership.
  • Reduce screening costs: Through Sterling Volunteers, nonprofits can allow or require volunteers to pay for background checks. Existing clients save an average of 40 percent on background checks due to volunteer contributions.
  • Eliminate administrative burdens: Volunteers order background checks online, using a secure portal, and nonprofits automatically receive copies of the records.
