Adam Safeguard strongly agrees with the many youth organizations who recommend thorough Volunteer Background Checks be done for all people who work with youth and other “at-risk” groups to ensure the safety of everyone.  Every person who has access to our vulnerable population should be screened to ensure that we are not putting them in harm’s way.
