There is a 1hr scheduled webinar with Verified Volunteers on Wednesday 7th October at 11:00 AM PDT, 14:00 East Coast Time (19:00 GMT). If you are interested in using Verified Volunteers to background check your mentors than I recommend you join, I can send through a calendar invite.
The webinar will go over best practices when recruiting mentors/ volunteers, as well as how US Dojos can set up sub accounts (under the CoderDojo Foundation account) in order to avail of background checking. This webinar is specifically for US based Dojo.
Note: It is hoped that shortly Global Sterling (the parent company of Verified Volunteers) will offer a similar webinar for Dojos in other locations wishing to use their service for background checking.
