• Whether you are a professional looking to share your time or talent, a community member wanting to give back or a parent looking to support your child's school, we are thankful for your interest in volunteering with ACPS!

    Volunteers offer a huge resource and support base for ACPS while showing students the importance of education.

    We use the KeepnTrack application and screening system to help ensure students' and staff safety. In order to perform volunteer work within ACPS departments/schools, you must first complete and submit the online ACPS volunteer application below. A criminal and sex offender background check will be performed.

    Volunteer Application Process

    1. Individuals 18 and older must complete and submit the Volunteer Application. A background check will be performed on all applicants. The process is free of charge to volunteers. ACPS is investing in this service as part of its commitment to provide a safe and secure environment for students.
    2. Approved volunteers will receive an authorization email directing them to the ACPS Family and Community Engagement (FACE) Center located at ACPS Central Office, 1340 Braddock Place, to complete the verification process. Volunteers must bring a valid photo identification.
    3. An ACPS Volunteer Card with a barcode and ID number will be issued to volunteers through the FACE Center.
    4. Always use your volunteer card at the designated kiosk located at each school to sign in and out.
    5. Please make certain to always visibly display the printed volunteer sticker while on school property.
    6. Volunteers will be notified one month prior to the expiration of their approval date and a request will be made to run a new background check. If the volunteer is interested in continuing to volunteer, he/she must respond with written consent. A new background check will then be run. Upon approval, the existing volunteer badge will be re-validated for an additional one year period. The volunteer will receive an email notice.

  • ACPS Celebrates National Volunteer Week!

    National Volunteer Week is an opportunity for ACPS to recognize and thank volunteers who lend their time, talent, voice and support to causes they care about in their community. Their stories can serve to inspire others to find ways to take action that creates change. "Service Unites," the theme for National Volunteer Week, captures the power of changemakers to come together to build stronger, more vibrant communities through service. National Volunteer Week was established in 1974 and has grown exponentially each year, with thousands of volunteer projects and special events scheduled throughout the week. Plan or attend an event to celebrate the impact of changemakers in your community, and inspire others to serve.
