The volunteer spirit found in the St. Vincent de Paul School community is an essential element promoting spiritual growth and academic success. Every year, parents and other volunteers donate hundreds of hours of their time to making sure ongoing needs such as workroom assistance and special events such as Field Day are fully staffed. Below you will find a listing of volunteer opportunities for the coming school year. Please take a few moments to review that listing and consider if your talents would be of assistance in one or more areas.
When you have found the perfect area or areas of interest for you, sign up to volunteer. That signup can be accomplished in one of two ways. For some events/activities, an online signup process has been created; simply click on the link provided to get started with those signups (links will be activated as signup forms are created). In other cases, volunteering is accomplished through emailing a designated contact person; click on the name of that contact to launch your email program (email addresses are also provided in full in the event they are needed).
All volunteers working during the school day or when students are present need to complete Safe Environment training and have an active Safe Environment certification card from the Archdiocese of Omaha. School staff will verify Safe Environment status for all volunteers before volunteers are allowed to begin providing services.
Thank you for your continued support of St. Vincent de Paul School.
