Raptor Volunteer Application

  • Raptor Volunteer Management is a new tool Methacton School District is using to collect volunteer information and help automate the volunteering process. 

    All volunteers (position and guest) are required to submit an application through our new Raptor Volunteer Management system. Once your application is approved, you will receive access to the Volunteer Portal to manage your volunteer account. Please note: All returning volunteers with current clearances (expiration in July 2023 and beyond) have been pre-approved and added to the system.

    If applying to serve as POSITION VOLUNTEER, please have all of your clearances ready to upload prior to beginning the application process. You will NOT be able to save your progress.
