Class A & Protective Behaviors
Special Olympics Kansas has implemented its volunteer screening policy effective July 1, 2005, in accordance with revisions set forth by Special Olympics, Inc. This change was made to protect Special Olympics athletes. These changes are the best way to protect our athletes, volunteers and the organization. The safety of our athletes is a priority to SOKS. Therefore, volunteers are screened based upon their level of involvement with the athlete
Class A Volunteers - All Class A Volunteers must complete an Adult or Youth Class A Volunteer Application. Active Class A Volunteers will be re-screened automatically on a 3-year cycle.
Class A Volunteers are volunteers who have regular, close physical contact with athletes, who are in a position of authority or supervision with athletes, who are in a position of trust with athletes and who handle substantial amounts of cash or other assets of SOKS.
Examples of Class A Volunteer: coaches, chaperones, Unified Partners, Athlete Leadership Program mentors, family members who drive non-related athletes and GMT members.
