Steps to Become a NCA Volunteer
Complete the NCA Volunteer Form found here.
Go to the Giving tab, select Volunteers from the dropdown list, and then click on Volunteer Sign-Up. Complete the form and submit.
If you are interested in serving around our scholars (i.e., becoming a chaperone, helping during field trips or inside the classroom, etc.) please indicate so by checking “Other” and adding a note in the provided space.
If your volunteer position requires interaction with our scholars, a Collier County Public School (CCPS) Level II Background Check clearance will need to be obtained.
To Obtain CCPS Level II Volunteer Clearance*
Please visit https://www.collierschools.com/volunteer and fill out a volunteer application. CCPS has created a "Charter" option for our school name.
There are two forms that must be filled out and returned to our Project Coordinator (See links under Important Documents). Once you fill out the CCPS volunteer application please download the two forms, sign them and email them to badams@Optimaed.com. Our Project Coordinator will send them to CCPS, who will then review them for approval and send you a unique link to schedule your fingerprinting appointment.
If you are an active CCPS Level II volunteer with a clearance level within the past five (5) years, please let us know in your volunteer application or by emailing our Project Coordinator at badams@Optimaed.com.
Once our coordinator has verified your clearance with CCPS, they will contact you regarding your next steps.
Level II clearances are only valid for five (5) years. You will need to be fingerprinted again if your Level II clearance has expired or is close to expiring.
*If you do not already have a Level II clearance with CCPS, please refer to the steps above.
NOTE: There is a CCPS $41.25 fingerprint processing fee for all Level II background checks. (Only payable by check or money order made to Collier County Public Schools or CCPS)
Once you are approved, the Project Coordinator will contact you. At that point you are welcome to visit our Volunteer page on our website to view current volunteer opportunities.
What happens if I’m not approved for a Level II volunteer?
If you are not approved for a Level II clearance, you may still participate as a parent with your child ONLY. You may not volunteer in any capacity.
We look forward to serving our NCA community and scholars together!
