NEW Volunteer Background Check Program effective July 1st, 2015

Dear Towson Rec Council,

Baltimore County has instituted the NEW Volunteer Background Check Program effective July 1st, 2015

Volunteers must complete this process prior to each program season.

PURPOSE:

Baltimore County Government is invested in increasing the safety of participants and families while they are participating in Recreation and Parks activities and programs. This commitment is extending our efforts to include conducting background investigations for all volunteers who participate in Recreation/Nature Council, Therapeutic, PAL, and other County-sponsored recreation programs.

The background investigation will be conducted by a nationally recognized security screening firm, the Southeastern Security Consultants, Inc (SSCI). This screening is a review of each applicant’s criminal history. The results of the screening will determine each volunteer’s eligibility to volunteer in our programs. To protect the privacy of all volunteers in the program, Baltimore County staff will not have access to any information regarding this background screening. SSCI will only provide a list of passed applicants to Recreation and Parks staff.

This program is a preventive measure. It is not meant to take the place of parental involvement and participation. It is meant to work in partnership with parental efforts to ensure that their children and all constituents enjoy programs and activities in a safe environment.

WHO must complete the background investigation:

Board of Recreation and Parks Members

Recreation/Nature Council Board Members

Recreation/Nature Council Chairpersons

Head and Assistant Coaches

Instructors and Assistant Instructors

Volunteers who have care, custody or control of children

Volunteers who have access to confidential information (example: registration forms, financial

Turf for Towson HS Moving Forward

The Towson Rec Council (TRC) is pleased to announce that funding for an artificial turf field for Towson is included in the new Baltimore County Budget released on April 15, 2014.

 

The new turf field will provide the first regulation multisport field in Towson available to TRC.  The youth sport programs provided by TRC have suffered due to lack of safe, playable fields, with some teams travelling as far as 25 miles for a “home” field.  This new field will greatly alleviate the field shortage in Towson.  TRC currently has more than 6,000 active members participating in youth and adult programs.

 

TRC partnered with the Towson High Sports Booster Club over the past three years to jointly advocate for the addition of a turf field.  Both organizations raised significant funds for the project in order to reduce the cost to the County. 

 

We would like to thank our elected representatives Steve Lafferty, Jim Brochin and David Marks, who supported our efforts.  Kevin Kamenetz, our County Executive, recognized the need for safe, playable green space in Towson and committed the funding needed to make this project possible. 

 

We look forward to continuing to provide quality youth sports programming in Towson to enhance a healthy lifestyle and strong community.  It’s Towson’s Time.
