*For the safety of the Hondurans we serve, our volunteers, staff, and the organization itself, Honduras Good Works will follow a screening process including a Background Check for any team member who (a) works with children, (b) handles money for the organization, and/or (c) drives a vehicle for Honduras Good Works purposes, whether in the United States, Honduras, or elsewhere. That effectively means all volunteers who go on mission trips and all employees must be screened by a professionally administered background check.
Background checks will be used in combination with other tools where appropriate: applications, references, interviews, training, evaluations/reviews, and job descriptions to screen candidates for volunteers and employment in the organization
