Volunteer training is made available to individuals interested in volunteering in Richmond County schools. Volunteers may help with classroom activities, computer labs, field trips, mentoring, office duties, storytelling and tutoring, just to name a few.
You may volunteer at the school(s) of your choice. All volunteer training will be held at the school site unless informed otherswise. Please contact the school in which you wish to volunteer for the appropriate training schedule. If your school is not holding a workshop convenient for your schedule, you may train at any other school in the Richmond County School System. Volunteer cards will be issued by the Richmond County Board of Education’s Central Office within a timely period and are valid at any Richmond County School.
All volunteers who wish to mentor or tutor students, chaperone or drive for field trips, work in the school office, classroom, media center or computer labs MUST complete a background check that is processed in the Public Safety Department. The background check is administered by the Richmond County Board of Education’s Central Office at no cost to you and all information is confidential.
Parents, grandparents, guardians and other appropriate relatives wishing to help with class parties, field days, book fairs, carnivals, spaghetti suppers or eat in the lunchroom with a child or grandchild are not required to attend training nor be cleared through a background check.
