Are you a parent, legal guardian or community member who wants to volunteer at a West Contra Costa Unified School District (WCCUSD) school or event? If so, first, you need to get fingerprinted and badged at one of the district’s upcoming fingerprinting “parties.”

The WCCUSD is hosting a series of six fingerprinting parties at different district schools in September, October and February. Reportedly, the process takes little time investment, the volunteer badges are free and the visits are drop-in—meaning, no appointment is necessary.

Here’s a rundown on the WCCUSD’s fingerprinting parties, which will all be held on their respective dates from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m.: Sat., Sept. 2, Collins Elementary, MPR room, 1224 Pinole Valley Rd. in Pinole; Sat., Sept. 9, Harding Elementary, cafeteria, 7230 Fairmount Ave. in El Cerrito; Sat., Sept. 16, Lupine Hills Elementary, MPR room, 1919 Lupine Rd. in Hercules; Sat., Sept. 23, Helms Middle School, MPR room, 2500 Rd. 20 in San Pablo; Sat., Oct. 7, Lovonya DeJean Middle School, MPR room, 3400 Macdonald Ave. in Richmond; and Sat., Feb. 10, Harding Elementary, cafeteria, 7230 Fairmount Ave. in El Cerrito.

Note that prospective volunteers should complete the online application BEFORE attending a WCCUSD fingerprinting party. Anyone who already has a WCCUSD volunteer badge does not need to apply for one again. Questions? Contact (510) 307-4526.
