Volunteer Requirements

Thank you for showing an interest in volunteering for your child(ren) at the Academy of the Most Blessed Sacrament.

With our ever changing world and for the safety of our students, there are three - easy to complete - requirements from the Archdiocese for all volunteers - including but not limited to - class moms, coaches, HAP members, lunch volunteers, and/or chaperones.

Please submit the following forms to the main office c/o our AMBS Safe Environment Coordinator Jean Stroud so that you may begin/continue your volunteer status.  All forms are required prior to assisting within the school and/or with your child(ren)’s class.  Completion of these forms as written (you may not eliminate or change the documents in any way) is required by the Archdiocese of Newark.

1. Volunteer Application
Please fill out the Volunteer Application - in its entirety - especially pages 5 and 6 with appropriate initials and signature.  A background check will be performed and once completed, a letter will be sent home notifying you of your status and a copy of this letter will be kept on file in school.

***If you filled an application out last school year (2016-2017) for AMBS - it is not necessary to fill one out for this school year.
