Volunteering in our Schools

  • volunteer  

    Thank you for your interest in volunteering in Durham Public Schools! Volunteers are an essential part of our efforts to ensure academic achievement for every student in every school. By tutoring, assisting with activities or otherwise sharing unique talents and time, volunteers make a valuable contribution toward the success and well-being of our students.
     

    All volunteers must first complete an application and undergo a brief background check. You can complete all of this online by registering here or following the link on the menu at the left. Please note that volunteer approvals are valid for two years.

    After you register and receive your approval email, you can tell us what kind of opportunity you are looking for, sign up for a particular school, or simply let our staff offer you choices about where you're needed the most.

    We welcome you to Durham Public Schools and thank you for being a part of our success!
