Volunteer Program

How You Can Volunteer
Volunteering only takes a few simple steps:

  1. Tell us about yourself and your areas of interest by completing a volunteer application at the Des Plaines School District 62 Volunteer Program website.
  2. Your completed volunteer application will be reviewed by the community relations director. After a telephone interview, the community relations director will work with school volunteer coordinators to match your expertise, interests, and skills with staff requests for volunteers.

Applying on paper
If you are unable to make an online application you may submit a paper application. Please bring a copy of completed application to your school secretary - ENGLISH | ESPAÑOL | POLSKI
