Providence Academy is blessed by the generous and enthusiastic support of parent volunteers. Volunteering is the perfect way to connect with parents and share in the spirit of Providence Academy. It is also a wonderful opportunity to support your children, faculty and the community. There are opportunities to give your time during the school day, evening hours and weekends. Please take a moment to view the opportunities listed below and sign up for the event(s) that best fit your schedule. Descriptions and additional details may be found by clicking on the links. Thank you in advance for sharing your gifts of time and talent!
In order to participate as a volunteer, Providence Academy and the Archdiocese of St. Paul and Minneapolis require all adults who work with students to complete the following “Essential 3”:
- Attend a three-hour, “Protecting God’s Children” meeting, commonly referred to as “Virtus session,” and complete the online “Mandatory Reporting” training at www.virtus.org
- Authorize and successfully complete a background check.
- Complete a Code of Conduct Form.
Please note that you may attend the “Protecting God’s Children” meeting at any of the listed locations. For your convenience, sessions will be held at Providence Academy on September 27, 2018, January 15, 2019, and April 9, 2019. Regardless of location, pre-registration is required for all sessions at www.virtus.org.
Adults who completed these items more than 3 years ago will receive an automated notice that you must complete a recheck of the background check, view an online video “Keeping the Promise Alive, and complete online videos on how to report abuse and working with vulnerable adults (this video will be required 3 years after “Keeping the Promise Alive.”). You will need to print a paper copy of the “Informed Consent” and return it to the school office after signing. To access and complete these materials, you will need to log into your account at www.virtus.org.
For questions, please contact PA’s VIRTUS Coordinator, Mrs. Ann Brown, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
