I, understand it will be necessary for AFC to conduct a background check regarding my driving record, criminal history, personal references, and employment.

I authorize AFC to obtain any needed information regarding my driving record, legal/criminal history, character references, and employment from any state or federal agency, my employer, and personal references for the purposes of participating in AFC programs. Further, I provide permission for AFC to conduct the same investigation of my background in previous states in which I have resided.

Once a match is determined, my identity and any other information known about me may be shared with the youth and parent/guardian to ensure a safe and successful mentor relationship.

Please list any other cities, states, and dates of residency during the past 10 years.
