Family and Community Engagement
School volunteers are valuable members of the Green Woods Community, and our partners in education. By donating your time and talents, you help our students on their journey to become active young stewards of the natural world!
As a result of Pennsylvania laws, all volunteers must complete a volunteer application and submit up to date clearances. For the application and to submit your clearances please use this FORM.
- The Child Abuse Clearance Form: https://www.compass.state
- Criminal Background Check: https://epatch.state.pa.
- FBI Fingerprinting (https://www.identogo

*Please note, due to the continuing COVID-19 pandemic, all volunteers are required to wear masks while in the school building, and adhere to GWCS health and safety protocols. Volunteers must provide proof of vaccination, or have a negative COVID test prior to volunteering.
