Volunteer and Record Service Hours at SJSC

Thank you for your interest in volunteering at St. Junipero Serra Catholic School for the upcoming school year. 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 on campus.
