We support and encourage OLF parents and family members to become involved in their student’s school and learning community. OLF parents are found serving our community by serving as HSA board members, event planners, coaches, marketing assistants, chaperones, or bolstering the success of any one of our OLF school community activities.
Volunteer opportunities are showcased at Open House each year, but there are a number of ongoing and unexpected needs throughout the year. We invite and encourage all parents and family members to get involved as your time allows - visit this link for a current list of available opportunities.
All of our volunteers are required to be Virtus trained. Please visit the Virtus website and select “Bridgeport, CT (Diocese) from the dropdown menu to find a schedule of upcoming trainings in our area. If you need to renew your training (after 5 years), please contact Diane Favier, OLF School Administrative assistant at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Our Parent Ambassador program exists to expand the reach and to increase word of mouth for OLF. Our parent ambassadors help us to share the good news of OLF with friends, volunteer at our admissions events, and host coffees in their homes for prospective parents. We wanted to take these efforts and organize them, providing clear strategies and goals for them and enabling them to see success through their efforts. If you are interested in helping us strengthen our community and increase enrollment, please contact:
