Child Safe Policy
ABCN’s first principle is to ensure the safety of all children in our programs. We do this through our Child Safe Policy – located here:
Working with Children Checks
To volunteer as a mentor for an ABCN program, you will require a Working with Children Check (or equivalent) in the specific state in which the program is taking place. Each state has a different process so to help you we have provided instructions below.
COVID-19 update: ABCN is escalating the development of digital versions of our traditional face-to-face programs in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. Mentors participating in digital programs still require WWCCs. Some states have changed their protocols, for example allowing online applications instead of in-person applications. Please check with your state ABCN contact regarding any changes. For more information about ABCN's COVID-19 response, please see here.
