Become a Volunteer

  • Your experience can help our students in and outside of the classroom and we truly appreciate the community support.

    Signing up is easy!  There are two types of volunteers.

    Level I volunteers do not need a background check because they are always around staff members. Examples include classroom/office helper, proctors/monitors, and people who work with PTA/PTO events during the school day.
     
    Level II volunteers have direct interaction with students with or without school staff present and require a background check.  Examples of Level II assignments are field trip chaperones, 1:1 or small group tutoring, and mentoring.  A payment of $22 to help cover the cost of the background check and processing is needed and will be valid for 3 years.  
     
    Level II Volunteer Process: 
    1. Make payment of $22 here or at any school.  Form of payments can be credit card, check or cash. Once you complete your payment email Tanisha Rogers at trogers@bcswan.net
    2. Volunteer will then receive a link and a PIN number to complete the background check.  You'll be notified of approval or denial via email and an identification card will be mailed to the volunteer within 7-10 days upon approval.

    Level II Volunteers must participate in an informational training session and pass a criminal background check before interacting with our students. Once the simple training process and background check are complete, your "Tools for Schools" can help shape our future leaders!
