Mandated Reporter Training
The mandated reporter training may be met by completing the 2 hour
online training provided by the Office of Child Abuse Prevention in
the State Department of Social Services at this link: https://mandatedreporterca.com/training/volunteers.
We ask that you please complete the mandated reporter training by
October 1, 2023.
You may have already completed mandated reporter training for either
work or other volunteer services. In the event that you have, we will
honor that training if it meets the California state requirements.
Live Scan Fingerprinting
AB 506 also requires all staff and volunteers who have more than 16
hours a month (or 32 hours per year) of contact with a youth to also
complete a Live Scan background check (the digital version of inked
fingerprinting). To complete this process, you will need to take the
GSSN Live Scan Form (below) to a Live Scan site.
Please ensure that you take a valid government issued ID such as a
driver’s license, state/government ID card, or passport. It is
critical that you use the GSSN
Live Scan form, as it includes our billing number as well
as the routing information for the results of your background check.
GSSN will automatically be billed for the Department of Justice and
FBI fees (approximately $50); however, each individual must pay a
fingerprint rolling fee (generally $25 or less) to the Live Scan
service provider. Please retain your receipt. You may either be
reimbursed by your Troop or Service Unit for this fee. In the
event that this presents a financial hardship, please contact Customer
Care for reimbursement within 90 days. To find the Live Scan site

Even if you already have a background check, you must complete a
CA Volunteers only
Due to the change in legislation, all background checks
previously conducted through Asurint Background Screening no longer
comply with the new mandates of AB 506. This means that all
staff and volunteers will have to complete the new Live Scan
background check process. With the introduction of Live Scan
background checks, all volunteers will only have to complete their
Live Scan background check once. The Council will receive subsequent
notifications of any future background check items, so it will not be
necessary to complete background checks every three years as has been
required in the past.
We recognize that as a Girl Scout Volunteer you dedicate many hours
to serving our girls each month, and we appreciate your assistance in
completing these new requirements of the California Law. Our
commitment is to provide as much support as possible to ensure our
volunteers are not severely impacted with time/travel issues. We will
continue to update you on this process but want to make you all aware
of the upcoming requirements.
We thank you for your cooperation and assistance in completing your
Live Scan at a third party provider until that time.
If you have any questions or concerns, please contact Customer Care

Thank you for all that you do to ensure we have a safe community
where we build girls of courage, confidence and character!
