Protecting God’s Children
All volunteers must complete a Protecting God’s Children Workshop before volunteering with students. This includes driving for field trips, helping with lunch duty, milk duty, art volunteers, or any other volunteer activity that puts you in contact with children.
You may take the online course at www.virtus.org and click on the registration link at the left of the screen, then choose Charlotte, NC (Diocese) under Select your Archdiocese, and follow the steps.
After completion of the course, you will need to also submit a Volunteer Background Check. If you take the Protecting God’s Children Workshop online, you will be prompted to complete a background check at the end of the course.
If you attend a workshop in person, please stop by the school office to complete a background check. Please bring your Protecting God’s Children Workshop Certificate of Completion to the school office so that we can make a copy to keep on file.
