Child Protection Improvements Act - Access to FBI Records Checks for All Youth-Serving Organizations

October 13, 2014
FBI Criminal Background Checks

The American Camp Association and more than twenty other youth development partners have been working to close a gaping hole in federal law that prevents camps and other youth-serving organizations from gaining access to federal criminal background checks on employees and volunteers.

The bipartisan Child Protection Improvements Act  will be re-introduced in Congress in the fall of 2015.  Watch for a call to action to become an advocate and contact your legislators to urge their support of this critical child protection bill.
