So then, as we have opportunity, let us do good to everyone, and especially to those who are of the household of faith.

Galatians 6:10Congratulations to all of our dedicated volunteers who helped us achieve the NH Partners in Education Blue Ribbon Award for our outstanding in-school volunteer service for the 20th year in a row! This award is given to successful and effective school volunteer programs and recognizes extraordinary efforts of school volunteers around the state. A total of over 10,000 hours were logged! This awesome use of gifts has enriched student life and provided invaluable assistance to the faculty, staff, and administration.

Volunteer at PCA

  • Why? It’s good for you! It’s good for us! It’s good for them! Children with parents engaged in their school become healthier adolescents and become more engaged, themselves.
  • When? Any time! There are countless opportunities with a variety of volunteer times that are as flexible as your schedule! We have many ongoing, weekly roles, such as Lunch Delivery, as well as one-time opportunities, such as Event Set-up. We also have opportunities, such as Procurement, that you could do on your lunch hour or any time that works for you.
  • Where? Almost anywhere! At home, in the local community, or at PCA! Outside, inside, courtside, side by side!
  • What? Whatever talents and interests God has blessed you with! Whether your talents and interests are administrative, artistic, athletic, baking, supervising, organizing, reading, handiwork, technology, event-planning, procurement, photography, or worship, there is a way for you to be involved!
  • Who? YOU!
  • How? See steps on reverse!

How to Become a PCA Volunteer

  1. Complete the Volunteer Survey.
  2. Initial, sign, and date the Volunteer Code of Ethics form and return to Jodi Karnes’ attention. This form is available at the Front Desk at the Lower and Upper Schools and can be found online through the parent portal in Veracross.
  3. Complete the Background Check process:

Call the NH State Police Criminal Records Division at 603-223-3867 to schedule an appointment for fingerprinting.  Often the most convenient location is the Dover DMV.

Come to the Lower School Reception Desk with your driver’s license and ask to have the Criminal Record Release Authorization (or background check) Form notarized.

Bring your notarized form and driver’s license to your scheduled appointment. If this is in Dover, it will be with the DMV at 50 Boston Harbor Rd, Dover, NH.

Bring the form the DMV gives you, your notarized form, and a check made out to “State of NH—Criminal Records” in the amount of $20.75, to PCA’s Lower School front desk during school hours. Let the Receptionist know you are dropping off your background check paperwork. This must be done in a timely manner, as the DMV will only hold your fingerprints for up to 30 days.

ALL steps must be completed and PCA must have been notified by the State of NH of your successful background check results PRIOR to performing any in-school or student-contact volunteer duties, including chaperoning field trips and assisting with classroom activities. The fingerprinting process can take up to 8 weeks to complete, so it is best to initiate well before volunteer opportunities arise.

Find current volunteer opportunities on the Facebook page PCA Volunteer Service Program and in the weekly PCA: NOW email. Contact Jodi Karnes, Volunteer and Event Coordinator, jkarnes@pcaschool.org, 603-742-3617 ext. 119., with any questions or to help you get connected!
