We welcome and cherish Parent Volunteers at NCS!

We couldn't do many of the marvelous activities that we do without our wonderful volunteers.

Before volunteering at NCS, all volunteers and persons who are entrusted with the care, responsibility, or supervision of children, youth, and/or vulnerable adults or who may have unsupervised access to these vulnerable populations are required to comply with the diocesan fingerprint policy for background screening policy and to attend the appropriate safe environment training program - no exceptions.

If you wish to volunteer in any capacity at the school:

  1. Complete Safe Environment Program training and
  2. Complete Level II Background Check (fingerprinting)

Once you have completed your Safe Environment Training and the Level II Background Check, please Return documents to Therese Alonso, Director of School Affairs and then create your Better Impact account here: https://bit.ly/NCSBetterImpact

Volunteer opportunities will be available and will be tracked throughout the school year via Better Impact. Get notified of volunteer opportunities, sign up for volunteer opportunities, and track hours.
