Youth Protection Policy

Junior Leadership Akron

Leadership Akron (LA) believes in putting the best leaders in front of the high school juniors selected to participate in Junior Leadership Akron (JLA) each year.  In order to be sure that we are protecting our students, families, and volunteers, the organization conducts background checks on all volunteers who work directly with the students.  The background checks are required to be renewed each year that a volunteer is working with the students.

It is acceptable to submit a current background check when available from another organization.  Leadership Akron recognizes that many volunteers are already being screened with other organizations.  If you are able to obtain a copy of a current background check from another organization, and submit it to Leadership Akron, 54 E. Mill Street, Suite 201, Akron, OH 44308, it will be submitted to the current provider for their review and approval for our use.
