Sterling Community School - Volunteer Application

We appreciate your interest in volunteering at Sterling Community School. Our district offers a variety of activities you may choose from when volunteering your time. Simply complete and submit a volunteer application and upon approval you will receive instructions on next steps.

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. If you are unable to provide an email address, you use the district’s email address. All information collected on the application will remain confidential and not be shared outside the volunteer program.

Once you have completed the online application, you will need to submit additional paperwork to the Main Office physically. This includes an Authorization for DCF CPS Background Check, Volunteer Information Form, and a Waiver of Liability. These forms are available at: https://www.sterlingschool.org/volunteer-app.

If you have any questions about the application, please request to speak with the Main Office.

Thank You,
Sterling Community School
