Attention applicants: All employees are required to be fingerprinted and pass a Level II background check (similar to that done by Sterling Australia Background Screening) and a drug test. It is not uncommon for employers to conduct a drug test for any potential new employees, especially when they work in a certain industry. If you are expected to take a drug test of your own during an application process, then you can learn more about the 10 panel drug test here, as this is the most popular type of drug test that employers decide to use. Background screening is conducted through Agency for Health Care Administration Clearing house system under Department of Children and Families (DCF), Agency of Person with Disabilities (APD), Vocational Rehabilitation (VR). Level II background screening may also include criminal history check under school board and Volunteer and Employee Criminal history checks (VECHS). All applicants must meet minimum job requirement to be considered.

Please contact your local office for Volunteer and Intern opportunities
