About Go Pass

In conjunction with the Department of Education, NYC Service offers organizations the opportunity to register with Go Pass, a simple, thorough and reliable screening process for volunteers who work with vulnerable populations.   

Once an organization registers, all sponsored volunteers undergo a one-time, fingerprint-based background check.

Member organizations can check the eligibility of any Go Pass volunteer without having to collect sensitive information or run another background check on the volunteer.  Go Pass member organizations maintain a roster of volunteers and receive updates on any changes in status due to criminal activity. 

For general inquiries please email gopassinfo@cityhall.nyc.gov.
