Liability & Insurance
Prior to enrolling youth in the D-R-E-A-M program, background screenings on adults mentors will be conducted and documented through the security manager. The National Center For Safety Initiatives (NCSI) at (866) 883-7100 and/or firstname.lastname@example.org; provides our background checks at a fee.
Each KLC mentor is required to comply with the background requirements to participate in the D-R-E-A-M mentorship program. After the security manager receives clearance on those professionals who are officially approved to serve as a youth mentor can only then physically interact with D-R-E-A-M youth program.
