Volunteers are essential to educational institutions. They can assist classroom teachers in educating children, mentoring students, and providing assistance to help create a safe and secure school environment. Volunteers also assist in chaperoning field trips, fundraising, and after school activities including school sporting events.
In an effort to provide additional financial protection to these volunteers, NYS School Safety Group 491 is offering Volunteer Participant Coverage to its members via Glatfelter Specialty Benefits/ACE American Insurance Company. This coverage is intended to provide financial assistance to those individuals that are injured while volunteering their services to your school who would not otherwise be covered on your Workers’ Compensation insurance policy.
