Why Verified Volunteers?

Verified Volunteers delivers best-in-class, accurate, and fast volunteer background screening that's tailored to the needs and budgets of nonprofits, churches and other service organizations.

This partnership developed after a couple of US Dojos had great success screening their volunteers through Verified Volunteers and recommended that the CoderDojo Foundation form a partnership.

You can see the partnership announcement below.

Case Study - CoderDojo McDonagh and Verified Volunteers

"The Verified Volunteers background check service has been integral to the success of CoderDojo McDonough. Before Verified Volunteers, our non-automated background check process was a roadblock that made it difficult to onboard new mentors. As soon as we released the Verified Volunteers background check system at our dojo we had several mentors signup immediately who had difficulty with our previous background check process. The background check process provided by Verified Volunteers has streamlined mentor signup for both mentors and administrators at CoderDojo McDonough."
