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.
CMSE Diocesan Course
Volunteers are required to enroll in a CMSE (Creating and Maintaining a Safe Environment) Diocesan Course. Volunteers must take their cleared background form to the class. Classes are available through various parishes and occasionally at IWA. Scheduled parish classes may be found at www.diocesecc.org/cmse-current-schedule.
For more information about this program, please visit: http://www.diocesecc.org/cyp
After completing the course, parents will receive a signed copy of the Code of Conduct sheet. This must be given to the school level administrative assistant along with your IWA Volunteer Application. A copy of your photo ID will be made at this time. Once we receive your cleared background check, your blue CMSE certification card will be available in your school level office.
For any information regarding the volunteer application process, please contact Ashley Cartwright, Campus Minister, at email@example.com or 361-883-0857 ext. 173.
