Background Checks for HIGH 5 Buddies over 18

Below is a list of background checks that need to be completed for buddies who are over 18. Please make sure you complete the required background checks and submit them to Coach Jenn at  [email protected]. NOTE: If you have obtained these clearances for other reasons within the last 60 months (5 years), such as volunteering at school, for scouts or as part of an employment application, you can use those same clearances for GEYA.
