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

Current Volunteer Opportunities

There are many great things happening on campus right now, which translates into LOTS of ways and places for you to plug in!  Could you consider volunteering your time in one of the following areas?

  • Lexia Dismissal Group Volunteers needed on a weekly basis to oversee students any day(s), Monday through Thursday, from 2:30-3:15, as they work on Lexia, our computer-based reading program.
  • Substitute Lunch Volunteers needed from 11:45-12:45 periodically to step in for lunch volunteers when they are unable to help on their regular days.
  • Christmas Decorating Committee Volunteers: Decorating PCA for Christmas calls for fellowship and fun, a time to be filled with excitement, delight, and pure joy in preparation of the celebration of the birth of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.  December 2nd and 3rd (actual decorating days) will be here in no time, so the two weeks before Thanksgiving to meet as a committee are upon us. Please join us to lend your creativity and hands to our decorating efforts!

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:
    1. Call the NH State Police Criminal Records Division at 603-223-3867 to schedule an appointment for live scan fingerprinting.  Often the most convenient location is the Dover DMV at 50 Boston Harbor Rd, Dover, NH.
    2. Bring the form the DMV gives you at your scheduled appointment, your driver’s license, and a check made out to “State of NH—Criminal Records” in the amount of $21.25, to PCA’s Lower School front desk during school hours (7:30am-4pm). Let the Receptionist know you are dropping off your background check paperwork and that you need your background check form notarized. 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!

Our volunteer needs are always changing, and there is a wide variety of ways that you can give of your time and talents. Fill out the Volunteer Survey so that we can connect you with volunteer opportunities that match your interests. Contact Jodi Karnes to find the perfect fit for you!
