Do you drug screen your volunteers and if so, do you drug screen Junior Volunteers?
We drug test all of our new volunteers, and are an at will/for cause testing by HR for any employee, volunteer, or contract employee.
This does include our teen volunteers, with a signed parental permission slip that is sent to the teen the day before our drug screening. By HR rule, you must test within 48 hours of notification or you can't volunteer or you will be dismissed. You will be surprised at how many teens don't pass the drug screenings. Bad choices seem to start earlier than ever these days.
Also if you are a nicotine free campus, how do you know if you don't drug screen?
If you or anyone else has additional questions, just contact me.

Yes, we drug screen Junior Volunteers as well as adults. We do not do background checks on Junior Volunteers because their files are sealed if they are under 18. We mirror our HR policies and our hospital employs some people under 18 on a part-time basis and they are also drug screened.
Hi Nancy -
Similarly to Cindy, we also drug screen all our Volunteers, Juniors included. Likewise on the background screenings, as juvenile records are sealed.
Best of luck!
We do not drug screen any volunteers.
