Volunteering w/Children Requirements

Volunteering at SJA

St. Joan of Arc would like to first thank you for volunteering to work with our children. Your involvement is a key role in helping form our youth in faith and character. We couldn’t do it without you! 

To maintain compliance with the Catholic Diocese of Cleveland and ensure the safety of our children and yourself, we require that all adults, age 18+, who will be in contact with children as a volunteer, coach or staff member to complete the following:
  1. Be fingerprinted at St. Joan of Arc and pass the background check.
  2. Attend the Virtus workshop at any parish in our diocese & submit your Virtus Certificate to Sr. Ann Marie.
