Welcome to our OLG School Volunteer Page!
At OLG, we are so thankful to our volunteers who assist with so many parts of the work we do. Thank you to each volunteer who helps our students, staff and community!
Here you will be able to find all the information you may need to volunteer with us! Please visit the pages below to explore all the different opportunities available within our School, Parent Organization, Parish, as well as many other event specific openings.
Let’s face it: many of us get a little bit nervous (or a lot) when it comes to volunteering…We all don’t have the same talents or abilities and at times we might be afraid we will get asked to do something we are really not good at. Not all of us are great event organizers…some of us cannot cook, some of us may love children but would not be able to help with recess or a field trip…the list goes on.
So, in order to help YOU find the RIGHT volunteer role, we have created this “Volunteer Talent Profile Survey” so that we can help matching you with opportunities that will truly get you excited and fulfilled. And that are also suitable to your talents, time and schedule.
So, sit back, relax and take 5 minutes to complete our Volunteer Talent Profile Survey!
School Wide Opportunities
Please keep in mind that all volunteers who work with children and/or money (i.e. to help in the classroom, drive on field trips, tutor or to be a CYO coach or volunteer, etc) you MUST complete the Safe Environment Program(which includes a Background Check) and Virtus Training PRIOR to volunteering. There are quite a few in-person classes in the Renton area as well as Zoom options. To register, visit VIRTUS Online or contact our local Safe Environment Coordinator, Sandy Plummer at (206) 935-0358 for more details.
Parent Org (PO) Opportunities
Become part of the PO Leadership Team and earn an automatic credit towards your required annual volunteer hours (aka commitment hours)! In addition, you get to be an active member of the parent group with one of the strongest impact potential in your child’s school experience.
Event Specific Opportunities
Some of these opportunities include our Annual School Auction, Jog-A-Thon, Halloween Carnival, OLG Game Night, Light the Night (Christmas) and other Parent Org events.
Attention Parents and School Families! Your active participation in the life of the Parish and Parish activities counts towards your required volunteer hours too! 🙂
