How to Become and Approved Volunteer: Compliance Procedures for All Volunteers

The St. Benedict Prep community welcomes volunteers to help provide students with the best educational environment and opportunities possible.  We depend on family support to carry out our mission to inspire and cultivate a balance of faith, academic excellence, and individual talents in a diverse setting.

ALL VOLUNTEERS need to complete the following training and forms before they can volunteer for the school or parish events that involve positions of trust or working with children:

1.  Complete an online criminal background check.  CLICK HERE to begin the process. A few notes about the registration page: The access code is "protection"; choose "Archdiocese of Chicago", not "Religious Community...Volunteer."  Once the registration page is completed, a checklist of pages to complete will follow. All pages must be completed before you can submit the background screening.

2.  Attend Virtus/Protecting God's Children for Adults.  Go to, and select Registration on the left panel. Note: all participants must pre-register online to attend. Upon completion you will be given a certificate which should be turned in to the school.

3.  Read and sign the Code of Conduct form and turn in to the school.  CLICK HERE for a copy of the Code of Conduct form.

4.  Complete Child Abuse and Neglect Tracking Form (CANTS).  Return completed form to the school. CLICK HERE for a copy of the CANTS form.

We do not want to disappoint any potential volunteers or turn any volunteers away. If you have any questions, please contact either Mrs. Christine Clardy at or Ms. Rachel Gemo at You may also check with Mrs. Dodovich ( in the office to confirm that all your requirements are fulfilled to be a volunteer at SBPS, including being a chaperone on a field trip.
