Family and Community Engagement: Become a Volunteer

 

How do I become a volunteer?

To keep in compliance with State Law and with best practices, we require that all persons interested in volunteering in the Fulton County School District register or re-register (even if a person has completed an application in the past) by completing the new online volunteer registration and application process. Applicants should be prepared to spend about 10-15 minutes for the training and application process.

In accordance with State Law, all volunteers must be current with the Child Abuse Reporting Protocol Training before being allowed to volunteer in our schools.  It is very important that volunteers enter their full legal name as it appears on their government issued ID (please do not use nicknames or "goes by" names on the application).

All applicants must wait 24 hours after applying for application processing and approval.
