We hope that you consider volunteering for ‘Super Heroes To Kids In Ohio’. THANK YOU for considering giving of your time to make a difference in the lives of others. There are just a few simple steps to make you an OFFICIAL member! We have achieved full non-profit and 501 (c) 3 status, and are confident that this status will lead to some wonderful opportunities for kids and the organization. Due to legalities, we are requiring that people who become group members, and welcomed to our private message board complete a simple background check, and continue to adhere to basic restructured safety policies. We would LOVE to have you with us!
Decide on Super Hero or Princess Character that you would like to portray, and purchase a costume.
All costumes should be ‘kid/family friendly’, showing little skin, cleavage, midriff, etc. The costumes can be realistic, but should not contain overly frightening themes or appearance including weapons. Weapon props may require SHTKIO Board approval. We want to do our best to bring as many smiles as possible.
Agree to Honor Our Code of Conduct
Offensive, derogatory, gross, profane, rude, or lewd behavior/posts cannot be tolerated on social media as a member of ‘Super Heroes To Kids In Ohio. We’re part of an organization that is looked up to as role models. We ask you to keep your own social media consistent with our mission. Any incidents will be addressed by the board as part of a 3 strike process.
Please just think before you post things on social media, and try to keep things ‘PG’. Also Please do NOT post any pictures of ‘private’ events. We have to respect the confidentiality of kids/families.
Any membership concerns will be handled by the board, board policy, and developing bylaws set forth to preserve the integrity and longevity of the organization.
Order Your Background Check
To interact with kids will require you to complete a simple background check that will take about 3 minutes which costs roughly $20.00. It can be written off on your taxes.
The cost for a National Search is $18.99. If you’ve used another name in the last 10 years, you will also need to run those names at a cost of $16.99 each. (Sorry, but it’s necessary that our background check includes any legal names you have used over the past 10 years.)
It takes about 1-3 days for results
To ‘PAY’, just input ‘DONATE THE COST TO YOUR ORGANIZATION’ and put in your credit card info.
WE KNOW that many of you have background checks for other jobs, but it is vital that we have them on file through this group.
