Need to know info ℹ️

  • The background check includes verifying your Social Security Number (SSN), a sex offender search, a watchlist search and national criminal search. 
  • To participate in the WAVE program all potential Advisors must undergo the check. [Also, the reason the form says AOL is because BUILT BY GIRLS is an AOL social impact brand]. 
  • If you do not have a SSN you are not eligible to participate in the WAVE program.
