Parent Volunteer Requirements

At CTCS we partner with parents to assist in student learning and faith formation. To volunteer on campus or in a classroom, parents have three requirements to fulfill to be ready for volunteering:

1.) Complete a background check. Paperwork to complete can be found on the following link or can be picked up at the CTCS school office. Background Check Form

2.) Completion of VIRTUS training. The VIRTUS program helps to provide training to adults to keep children safe. Training is offered in the Fall of each school year or by requesting a link from the CTCS school office to complete at home.  A certificate of program completing is required to be emailed to the school office at earmenta@ctcsyakima.org.
