At St. Alphonsus, we are a community of students, parents, teachers, staff, and parishioners and we all work together for our shared success. There are countless ways you can volunteer in the school community, the parish community, and our Ballard community.
- 30 hours for K-8 families
- 15 hours for Preschool-only families
- Families may “buy-out” service hours for $30/hour by writing a check or paying online. (Note: Buy-outs are not tax deductible because it’s an exchange for an enrollment obligation.)
Before volunteering, please confirm your Virtus profile and training requirements are complete. Follow the step-by-step instructions available here, Virtus Training and Compliance.
- Create a VIRTUS account.
- In VIRTUS, complete Criminal Background Check – required every 3 years
- In VIRTUS, complete Safe Environment Training – required every 3 years
If you have volunteered in the past, please take time to log into your VIRTUS account and see if you are up-to-date with your Background Check & Safe Environment Training.
