If you are planning on volunteering at school you must complete the Criminal Background Check and Virtus Training. Below are the instructions for completing these requirements.
Criminal Background Check: This is completed online at www.archchicago.org. Click on “Child Protection” at the top. This will give you access to "Compliance Resources.” Select “Compliance for Clergy, Employees, and Volunteers” to view a chart of compliance requirements. The chart has direct links (underlined and blue-lettered) to various compliance requirements. Click on the link to the background check. Click the link for first time users to register and create an ID/Password. The access code is: Protection. Please be sure to complete and print up the Code of Conduct and CANTS form and return to school. Volunteers do not need to be fingerprinted.
Virtus Class: You will need to register on-line at www.virtus.org before taking the 3 hour class. Please make sure that you sign in at the class. This is how the Archdiocese verifies that you attended. Send a copy of your certificate to the school office
