Background check screening will be required for all adults that interact with NSBE Jr members. The background check will screen for child-related offenses, violent felonies, sexual offenses, and financial crimes (ex. embezzlement) committed within the last 10 years. Information discovered through the background check process will be used solely for the purpose of evaluating whether the applicant will be permitted to interact with NSBE Jr members.
If the background check for a NSBE Jr. Advisor or other volunteer reveals any disqualifying offenses, the individual will not be permitted to facilitate NSBE Jr. chapter operations or attend any NSBE Jr. sponsored events. If a NSBE Jr. Advisor is disqualified and the chapter has more than one advisor, the second advisor will take over that chapter. If there are no other advisors, that chapter will be disenfranchised until further notice (no funding support, no scholarship eligibility for members, permission revoked to use the NSBE and NSBE Jr. trademarks, etc.)
