All AmeriCorps programs are required to conduct specific AmeriCorps background checks for each applicant. In order to be considered for AmeriCorps enrollment, you must complete a two-part criminal history check administered by Relay’s AmeriCorps Team.
We acknowledge that you have most likely already completed background checks for your school. According to new regulations set forth by CNCS (Corporation for National and Community Service), Relay cannot use the results of your school checks to determine eligibility for our program. We thank you in advance for your understanding and willingness to complete these checks in a timely manner.
*Note: If you served with Relay during the 2019-20 service year and completed the recheck, you do not have to complete new background checks for the 2020-21 service year.
