The Archdiocese of Atlanta requires that all adult volunteers (18 years old or older) working with children, youth, and/or vulnerable individuals must complete the Safe Environment training and undergo a background screening before they start volunteering. As a volunteer, you need to fill out the paperwork found at the Archdiocese of Atlanta website and return it to the head of the Ministry in which you are involved. Volunteers who do not have contact with children, youth, and/or vulnerable individuals are required to complete the Volunteer Application only.
Volunteers who are 13 years old or older should complete the Volunteer Application with their parent’s permission, and the School Reference for Minor Volunteer form. Home schooled minors must provide three references (non-family members).
In addition, volunteers must be familiar with the Reporting Child Abuse Guidelines. To view these guidelines, CLICK HERE.
