Why Volunteer?

  • Five pictures of volunteers in schools and/or working with students.

    We take pride in our work to build relationships with student, families and partners. To help our students develop into caring, competent, and contributing citizens, every member of the AACPS family must make a meaningful contribution to student growth.  Volunteers are an important part of the AACPS school community. By offering their time and talent, volunteers can enrich the education of our students, support our staff, and serve families in our community.

    All means all.  Family and community members, as well as local businesses, are welcome as volunteers in AACPS. Both short-term and full year opportunities are available.  Click here to read stories about some of the AACPS Awesome volunteer programs offered at our schools.
