In order to volunteer for CYO-related activities, please ensure that you have completed the appropriate forms and clearance checks that can be found below. Thank you.

Safe Environment Clearances

As of July 1, 2015, there are new clearances that need to be completed by volunteers.

Criminal Clearance
PA Child Abuse History Clearance
FBI Fingerprinting (only if you have not been a PA resident for 10 consecutive years)
Mandated Report Training

 

On July 1, 2015 a new PA child protective services law went into effect.

This law has three significant changes to our volunteer clearance policies.

1) PA criminal and child abuse clearances must be renewed every 3 years (we previously renewed every 5 years)

2) Anyone who has not resided in PA for the last 10 years must have FBI fingerprint clearance (used to be 3 years)

3) All clearances must be completed before any service begins (used to require criminal only before service)

We have updated the our policies to comply with these PA law changes as well as requiring the Archdiocese trainings are required before service begins.

As part of the new law, all volunteer clearances are now free to process (employees still pay).

We have included a quick checklist for those interested in volunteering.  Postcards were sent out to any returning volunteer who needs to renew clearances.
