Volunteers in the Community

All families are encouraged to volunteer in their communities. Like our students who serve at school AND out in their community, Families can apply up to 10hrs of community service to their 20hr Family Service requirements. If you can wear an HT Spirit T-shirt to a community service event, we'd love a picture so we can share your wonderful community spirit!

All families are asked to complete 20 service hours

EIM TRAINING FOR ALL VOLUNTEERS


Ethics and Integrity Ministry (EIM)

In an effort to protect our children, the Diocese of Austin mandates that all individuals who have contact with our children must be in compliance with the Ethics and Integrity in Ministry Policy, which equips each of us with the tools and knowledge to protect our children from possible abuse and perpetrators. All parents MUST complete this process to volunteer at the school.



Registration is required through the Diocese. In order to register for an EIM Workshop, you must first complete the volunteer application which is on their website. Once you have attended the workshop please submit a copy of the certificate to the school office. This workshop is for new parents and those who are in need of the refresher course.


For more information, go to: https://austindiocese.org/eim
