Volunteer in Our Schools
We welcome volunteers who want to use their skills and resources to help our students succeed. We've got a wide range of volunteer opportunities for you to choose from.
Process for Becoming a Volunteer
Volunteers who work directly with students on a regular basis are required to complete our clearance process. There are three steps:
1. Download and complete the Volunteer Application.
2. Complete a tuberculosis (TB) test with a physician.
3. Bring the application, current TB test result and a state issued photo ID to our office where you will be fingerprinted.
We process and fingerprint volunteers on a walk-in basis from 9:00 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. on Tuesdays and Thursdays.
If you already have active federal security clearance please complete the federal security clearance verification letter in lieu of having DCPS fingerprint you. All volunteers will be supervised by DCPS personnel.
PLEASE NOTE: Volunteers for Beautification Day or other weekend or one-day service events are not required to complete the clearance process.
