Thank you for your interest in becoming a School Volunteer! Each year, countless volunteers from the community give of their time and talents to assist in our schools. Volunteers can serve in many capacities, including answering phones, making copies for teachers, serving as tutors, serving as testing proctors, and much more! 

There are two steps to becoming a school volunteer. The first is to complete the online Volunteer Application form. Upon completion of the application, you will be directed to the Secure Volunteer link to authorize WCPS to conduct a background check.
