Adult Volunteers

All adult volunteers (persons 18 years old and older) must successfully complete the Child Protection Policy compliance process before volunteering in the Parish.

To do this the adult volunteer must:

  1. Create an account on VIRTUS.org and register for a Child Protection Training workshop.

  2. Attend a Child Protection Training Workshop - submit a copy of the Attendance Certificate from the workshop and the signed Acknowledgement Page from the Child Protection Policy to the coordinator.
  3. Make an appointment to see the coordinator to submit the Volunteer Application and show two forms of ID (driver's license, birth certificate, valid passport, social security card, visa, etc.).  Bring with you the Workshop Certificate and the signed Acknowledgement Page.
  4. During this appointment the volunteer will log onto a website where their background check will be completed electronically.  The cost for this is $13.50 (make check payable to St. Jane Frances de Chantal).  This process takes about ten minutes.

Visit the Archdiocese of Washington Youth page for additional information.
