New Volunteer Clearances & Mandated Reporting Requirements

In recent months, Pennsylvania state law has adopted important changes to the background clearance requirements for employees and volunteers that are involved with or in contact with children. Throughout 2015, these new clearance guidelines will require all churches to be in compliance with the procedures set forth in House Bill 435.

With the passing of PA House Bill 435 in October of 2014, changes in how we screen volunteers have taken place. The state now has a 3 –part clearance system with which all adults (18 years of age and older) who volunteer with minors must comply. This new law also makes every volunteer a mandated reporter in the area of child abuse. For more information on the Volunteer Clearances & Mandated Reporting and how to apply for clearances, please visit our Volunteer Clearances & Mandated Reporting page.
