6. How can I volunteer?

Mercymount relies on parent volunteers for a variety of school functions. From daily lunch duty to fundraising to sports coaching, there are numerous ways to donate your time. Volunteering is a vital way parents, grandparents, and caretakers can experience their child’s education and contribute to the community. When you volunteer, you get to see the Mercy values in action and provide an invaluable asset to our community.

Whether you can volunteer occasionally or as part of your daily/weekly routine, there is a place for you to be involved!

All volunteers must complete the Safe Environment Training. Training is renewed every 3 years.
