Dads of New Albany

Welcome to the New Albany Primary School volunteer organization for dads. Due to COVID-19. restrictions, our on-campus volunteer opportunities are limited. We are continuing to work with the NAPS leadership to identify ways that we can support the school. Please check back for updates and volunteer opportunities.

How does DNA Volunteering work?

Volunteering is simple:

  1. Complete a background check
  2. Sign up for a time to volunteer
  3. Show up at the Primary School office 5-10 minutes before your assigned time

If you would like to sign up for more than one time slot on a day for a 2-6 hour volunteer time, please feel free! We would love to have one or two dads in each time slot, but we’ll see how we do.

Please sign up at least 2 days in advance to give us time to gather the volunteer list and get it to the Primary School before your volunteer time.

We ask that all volunteers also complete an online background check 5 days prior to volunteering. This can be done all online for $19.45 through Secure Volunteer:

You will receive a confirmation from Signup Genius two days before your volunteer time, and all you will have to do is show up at school at your assigned time. It’s best to show up 5-10 minutes early to get checked in so that you can make it to the classroom/lunchroom/other location by the start of your volunteer time.

There are now t-shirts in the front office that are free for DNA volunteers who have completed their background check and are volunteering at school. Pick one up on your first day!

Thank you for helping dads have a greater presence in the school!
