social security numbers
i would like to know why the state of alabama requires our social security numbers for a background check. Isn't there a federal rule preventing using those numbers in a privacy act? And they want them to enter the master gardening program.

Background checks are now required by many volunteer organizations. In Alabama, this is a requirement from Auburn University and Alabama A&M, our parent universities for Cooperative Extension activities. The social security number ensures that all information accurately matches the person applying for a background check.
Thank you for your interest in Master Gardener volunteering
