Volunteers are an integral part of our success at Kaleidoscope. We welcome parents and other volunteers who help with events in our classrooms and around the school. We know these great events for our students would not be possible without our amazing volunteers!

To get started as a volunteer, you must complete the following two steps:


  1. Successfully pass a background check
  2. Create an account on HelpCounter

Background Checks


Because the safety of our students is incredibly important to us, any person who wishes to volunteer at Kaleidoscope must have a current background check on file. Background checks are valid for three years. All background checks will be processed online.


The cost of completing a background check is $21, which will be collected online at the time of submission. Please be sure a current background check is on file at least 72 hours before your volunteering event. Please note that turn-around times have increased, so submit your background check as soon as possible.
