Thank you for your interest in becoming a  volunteer at JHCP. Anyone who is  interested in volunteering at JHCP must complete a CPS volunteer application. 
 
Step 1:  Visit  https://cpsparentu.org and select  the "apply to become a cps volunteer link"
 
Step 2: The application will require you to select a Level I or a Level II volunteer option( level I and level II volunteers are described below). 
 
Step 3:  If you are a parent of a student at JHCP make  sure to include their name under the student name section. If you are interested in chaperoning for a field trip,please include the name of the field trip on the application.
