District Introduces New Application Process for Volunteers

District Introduces New Application Process for Volunteers
Posted on 08/16/2019

The St. Joseph School District is grateful to have a strong support system that includes a number of community volunteers.

VEST - Volunteers, Educators, Students Together - is an educational partnership involving the St. Joseph School District and the community. It is designed to enhance our student's educational experiences and aid the work of professional educators by offering the special talents and resources of the community in the public schools.

Starting this year, the St. Joseph School District will require that all volunteers complete a background check before they can volunteer in our schools. The online application process includes a $5.00 fee.

This process is in line with new state requirements and an added safety feature for the students we serve. Please review the information below if you are interested in volunteering at one of our schools.

Who can be a volunteer?
EVERYONE! Volunteers include parents, senior citizens, college and high school students, people in the business world, and other community members. A volunteer needs no special qualifications, just a genuine concern for children in our schools. Volunteer opportunities are coordinated by the District's Department of Volunteer Services. Each volunteer will be working with a building principal, a teacher, or other professionals who will give help as needed.

Interested in volunteering or becoming a mentor?
