Sterling Volunteers helps nonprofit organizations gain confidence in the volunteers working with those they serve by delivering thorough, compliant background checks. By enabling volunteers to order, manage and share their background checks via a secure online platform, we create a community of vetted volunteers and help nonprofit organizations save time and money.
Our extensive expertise in screening and compliance best practices help clients recruit the best volunteers in order to maintain a safe environment and positive reputation. Sterling Volunteers is backed by Sterling Talent Solutions the world’s largest background screening company and partnered with Points of Light, the world's largest organization dedicated to volunteer service.
