  • Policy statement for disqualifying offenses for The First Tee of Greater Charlotte's volunteer services

    In order to perform our due diligence in protecting the well-being and safety of each child we serve, TFTGC will perform a criminal background check on all Volunteers. TFTGC deems it necessary and advisable as a matter of policy to reserve the right to disqualify any person who has been charged with an convicted of any crime on TFTGC's list of disqualifying offenses. The following offenses are grounds for disqualification, regardless of any extenuating circumstances: -Crimes against the family, sex related offenses, child related offenses, murder, felony, theft/robbery/burglary offenses, and fraud related offenses and crimes against persons and property -All other offenses not otherwise described above may result in disqualification at the discretion of AISD and/or TFTGC. Factors considered by TFTGC to determine disqualification include the nature and severity of the criminal conduct, the length of time since the offense occurred, the likelihood of rehabilitation (which must be evidenced by community standing, employment and references) and other factors that TFTGC may deem appropriate under the circumstances.
