Acknowledgement of JLM Background Screening

The Junior League of Memphis’s community programs focus on neighborhood revitalization and include education, family strengthening and community pride. Many of our community partners require that a criminal background check be completed before a member can work with the children being served. All members, regardless of where they serve within the League, are required to complete a background check.

You will be emailed a link to the Background Screening company once your application has been accepted.
