The Act provides public and private school volunteers with immunity from tort liability. A volunteer is defined as one who provides services for schools without compensation at the request of the school. This immunity exists for acts and omissions that occur either on school property or at a school-sponsored function. The Act provides immunity from liability for public or private schools that request or participate in providing the volunteer services, provided the school also does not receive compensation.
