Parents: we encourage you to participate because we can't do it without parent volunteers -- and you'll have a great time!
  • IMPORTANT INFORMATION: As part of the Safeguarding Our Children and Youth Policy and Updated PA law, ALL volunteers who work with youth in any capacity must fill out a Volunteer Application (attached) and submit Criminal Background Checks and PA Child Abuse History Clearances. Volunteers who have lived in PA for 10+ years must sign an affidavit and those who have not lived in PA for 10 years must undergo an FBI fingerprint check. ALL volunteers working with youth in any capacity must also attend a Safe Church Training (check with the Church Office, 238-2422, to see when the next available training is – if you have attended a training within the past 2 years, you do not need to attend one this year). If you already have clearances from your employer or other volunteer organizations, copies of these will be accepted. Clearances must be current within the past 5 years. Clearances, which are available at no cost, are required for those who have regular contact with youth (cookie bakers do not need to comply). There is a charge for the FBI fingerprinting. Please contact us if you need assistance with obtaining clearances.
