We have done this with our work experience activities for TANF customers.  

We have the checks conducted if the worksite requires a background check  for 
the position, such as a daycare worker.  

Since the customers are on TANF, TANF will pay for the process.  

If you just go thru the local law enforcement agencies, the cost is around $50. 
We have had some private companies who have offered to do it as well - but at a 
 higher cost.

I checked with the person who coordinates our youth summer activity, and it 
does not appear that we place youth in positions that require background checks.

Has anyone dealt with the issue of requiring criminal background checks
and/or child abuse registry clearance for individuals in the workforce
development system and have direct contact with youth?  Also how do you
deal with WIA youth who are doing summer interns at private and not for
profit employers?

Need a quick answer so anything you can give me is a bonus.

Thanks JP
