Background checks for Kiwanis advisors

Kiwanis advisors to any sponsored Service Leadership Program (Aktion Club, Circle K, Key Club, Builders Club and K-Kids) are required to have a clear criminal history background check conducted and verified by Kiwanis International. By offering a standard, comprehensive background check for all Kiwanis advisors through Kiwanis International, we can be confident that all Kiwanis clubs are protecting those we serve—and protecting all Kiwanis members.

If you do not already have a background check completed through Kiwanis International, you will receive an email with instructions and a link to complete your background check. Please follow the instructions and complete the background check application in a timely manner. For more information on the cost, process or other details about the background check for Kiwanis advisors, visit kiwanis.org/backgroundchecks2016.

Please note:
  • If you are no longer serving as a Kiwanis advisor, please contact your Kiwanis club’s secretary and have that person update this information in the Kiwanis Secretary Dashboard of the Kiwanis online reporting system.
  • If you do not receive an email with instructions on how to complete your background check by October 15, contact your Kiwanis club’s secretary and have that person update this information in the Kiwanis Secretary Dashboard of the Kiwanis online reporting system
  • Individuals will not be notified if the background check is clear. It will, however, be marked in the Kiwanis club Secretary Dashboard as clear.
  • All background checks are kept confidential.
