Volunteer Opportunity and Requirements

Thank you for signing up to volunteer at St. Junipero Serra Catholic School for the upcoming school year.

We would like to remind you that per Diocesan requirements, volunteers need to be fingerprinted through the Diocese of Orange and must complete the online safe environment training. These requirements must be met prior to any volunteering for all on or off- campus activities or events that involve being in the presence of SJSC students. Off-campus events or activities include, but are not limited to, school sporting events, field trips and any school sanctioned activity for clubs and groups.
