We appreciate your interest in volunteering at our schools. All new volunteers, for all schools and activities, must complete this application.

Furthermore, staff members are instructed not to bring in volunteers unless they are on the approved volunteer list.
It is very important that the information you enter on the application matches your government-issued identification card including your full legal name. It is important that you provide a valid email address so you can be notified as to the status of your application and for future communication. All information collected on the application will remain confidential and not be shared outside the volunteer program.
In addition to completing the online application, volunteers must also submit the required clearances. if you have lived in Pennsylvania for less than ten years, 3 clearances must be obtained as part of the application and uploaded at the appropriate spot.
