Volunteer Opportunities

Volunteer Application


Parents who are interested in volunteering with campus activities, clubs, or organizations, must submit an IWA Volunteer Application. This application includes a Criminal Background Authorization form and Criminal Background Check Validation form. These forms must be submitted to the administrative assistant of the school level where most volunteering will occur.

Parents may pick up their criminal background clearance after at least 24 hours from the school level administrative assistant. The criminal background clearances are processed/approved through the IWA Central Office.

If you are interested in volunteering with Advancement and Marketing Department to help with the Annual Fundraising Event or Alumni Engagement, simply contact Robin Ritchey-Roy at Neither the Volunteer Application nor the Safe Environment (SE) Diocesan Course are required. 

Volunteer Application

SE Diocesan Course
