Volunteering at Mercy

Volunteers at Our Lady of Mercy School for Young Women complement and extend the activities and mission of the entire school. Working together with faculty and staff, volunteers perform specific duties and functions to increase the effectiveness of Mercy’s academic, enrollment, and development initiatives. Volunteer time is considered a valuable resource; we pledge to consistently work to respect every volunteer’s contribution. All volunteers can be assured their efforts make a difference! Here’s where you can help:

  • Bookstore
  • Office Support
  • Mailings
  • Open House
  • Driver for Ministry Day/Field Trips
  • Volunteer for Spirit Gala or other Special Events
  • Mercy Service (formerly Passport to Understanding)
  • Tutoring
  • Parent Association

Our Lady of Mercy School for Young Women’s Volunteer Program is designed to meet the needs and interests of both the volunteer and the school. It receives full endorsement from administration, faculty, staff, and the Board of Trustees. Our volunteers are recognized as part of the team, working to meet the goals and mission of the school.

Prior to volunteering at Mercy, all volunteers must fill out the OLM Volunteer Form. All volunteers must complete, Recognizing and Preventing Child Abuse Training through the Diocese, as well as completing the NYS Sexual Harassment Training. In some cases, a background check will be required. A Mercy representative will be in touch with the requirements needed.
