a program of TNVLC
Tuesday June 21
9:00 - 10:00 AM
700 West Main Street, Durham NC
Join us to learn about Volunteer Clear, a cost effective and constantly updated Background Check Program.
Background Screening is an important risk management tool for nonprofit organizations offering services to vulnerable individuals, However, creating, managing and updating a Background Checks program can be expensive and time consuming. Now, there is a better solution!
The Center is excited to be teaming up with First Point to offer an all-inclusive background check program. “Volunteer Clear” can be used by any of our nonprofit affiliates. We are pleased to also be able to offer KeepWatch, a Nightly Monitoring Service which screens (every 24 hours) each volunteer in Volunteer Clear. This service tremendously enhances your volunteer background check program. We alert you in real time with any violations.
Volunteer Clear is an online platform in which the nonprofit organization OR the volunteer can process the background screening check. Each agency will have their own portal/login and can easily access records online

Volunteer of the Week
Duke Hospital Auxiliary
A hospital isn’t always a cheerful or pleasant place, but Avani Desai
does her part to change that. As a gift
shop volunteer with the Duke Hospital Auxiliary, she’s there to cheer up staff
members, patients, and family members, and as a book cart volunteer, she moves
throughout the hospital, offering pleasure and diversion to patients and their
families. Avani began her work with the
Duke Hospital Auxiliary as a summer volunteer, but the staff of the junior
volunteer program was so impressed by her that they made her a year-round
junior leader. Joy Parton, the volunteer
coordinator, says, “This is a prestigious accomplishment and we love having
Avani here with us!” She adds, “Avani’s
devotion and character speak volumes to what our mission is all about.”
Thank you, Avani, for your hard work and for your dedication to helping
patients and their families!
for Emerging Leaders
What does it mean to be socially responsible?
What pathways exist to become a change agent in your community?
In this competitive college environment, civic engagement/volunteerism is a distinguishing factor with many universities requiring a demonstrated commitment to community service.
The Institute for Civic Engagement (ICE) is an intensive two-week summer enrichment experience. ICE empowers high school students to impact Triangle communities through socially conscious thought and action. By exploring the root causes of social issues, working with nonprofit agencies, and formulating service projects, students will develop a combination of knowledge, skills, values, and motivation to help shape the future of the Triangle and beyond.
