Volunteer Training Program

The Awty International School values all of our students, and we want them to be safe at all times. To help protect our students, everyone who volunteers must participate in the Volunteer Training Program and become an approved volunteer.

The program consists of two elements:

  1. Each volunteer must submit and pass a background check.
  2. Each volunteer must complete a training program that teaches about abuse and how to recognize and help prevent it.

Classes are available online. There are four modules, each of which take about 30-45 minutes to complete and are available at your convenience.

We also offer an in-house training at the beginning of the school year in English and in French:

To begin the training, parents must first complete the online background check form.

When the background check is completed and the training is verified, your name will be added to the Approved Volunteer list. An updated Approved Volunteer list is posted online every Monday for the Awty community to access in the myAWTY portal under Family Resources > Volunteering.

PLEASE NOTE: Approved status is now good for FIVE years from the time you took your last training.
