Classroom Aide:  Because Every Catechist Needs Good Help

Our program requires adult assistance to the catechist at almost every level.  For the safety of our children and to maintain a calm and effective learning environment, most classrooms are assigned an adult classroom aide to assist the catechist.  If you're not interested in teaching (or at least not yet) but would like to assist our program, this may be the role for you.  Experience all the fun of the classroom and share your faith, too!

All individuals over the age of 18 who serve as volunteers for programs involving children must comply with the Archdiocese of Washington's Child Protection Policy.  This includes completing a volunteer application form, an online background check, and attending a one-time class called "Protecting God's Children".  Our Child Protection Coordinator will assist you in satisfying these requirements prior to the start of your volunteer service.
