Volunteer Opportunities

The cooperative spirit of parents, guardians, and family members working together with the faculty and staff creates a strong team of nurturers to help our children and our school community develop and grow. Volunteers are needed for: IMAG0866Volunteers working with our children are required to submit a Volunteer Application to Mrs. Kathy Johnston, submit a background check form to Mrs. Beth Gravel for notarization, and complete the on-line workshop. If you require a different background check form based on recent residencies, please visit the Diocesan Website. Volunteers new to the Diocesan system who are registering through the school will also submit a check for $10 made payable to "St. Benedict Academy" to cover the costs of processing the background checks. IMAG0867Effective November 1, 2014, the Diocese of Manchester will begin using Shield the Vulnerable training as its online child abuse awareness course for adults who regularly work with minors. Shield the Vulnerable replaces Not on My Watch, and like that program, will be used as our initial as well as refresher training. The training can be found at:  www.shieldthevulnerable.org. Please note that those who have completed Not on My Watch or Protecting God’s Children training in the past 3 years do not need to complete Shield the Vulnerable at this time. Please refer any questions about your status to Mrs. Johnston.
