Volunteer Requirements

Thank you for your interest in volunteering at Frassati Catholic Academy.

All volunteers who will have either regular or unsupervised interaction with youth are required to complete the E3, which consists of:

  • Reading and signing a Code of Conduct.
  • Submitting a background check.   All volunteers submitting an initial background check must complete a paper copy of the 123B.03 form.  This form is available from the school office. If you completed a background check within the previous three years at another site, please contact the school office.
  • Attending a VIRTUS Protecting God’s Children live safe environment training. 
  • Viewing the Mandatory Reporting Training – “Reporting Suspected Child Abuse.”

New volunteers should click on the “New Volunteer” button below and follow the instructions to complete the required items.  The entire registration process will require approximately one hour and fifteen minutes. (If you have already attended a VIRTUS session elsewhere, please do not create a new account.  Contact the school office for instructions.)

Current volunteers who need to complete VIRTUS account updates should click on the “Current Volunteer” button below and follow the instructions provided.

If you have questions about volunteering or volunteer requirements, contact a school office staff member for assistance.

 

Volunteer Opportunities 

Volunteers are a valuable resource in our school. Watch classroom and school newsletters and the email announcements for opportunities to match your time, talent and skills. Families may record 5 volunteer hours for attending the fall fundraiser and 5 additional hours for attending the Spring Gala. Volunteer hours for FCA students do not count toward the family total; however volunteer hours for older siblings/children may be added to the family total. Your hours should be recorded in your family account on Sycamore. Each family is expected to give 20 hours of volunteer time yearly or be billed $12.50 an hour at the end of the year as part of their tuition package.
