Volunteers helping with a buffet line in school


Become a CCPS Champion

There are many ways to support Chesterfield County Public Schools as a volunteer or partner, and we encourage you to share your time and talents. Whether you are looking for ways to contribute as an individual, via an organization or through a donation, we are always seeking champions to support our students and schools. CCPS volunteers support student wellbeing, promote literacy, support classroom innovation and help grow life-ready graduates. We are always better together.

How it Works

Chesterfield schools have many volunteer opportunities available, both in person and virtual. Most volunteers must complete an application which goes through a central approval process that includes a background check. This could take two to four weeks, so be sure to allow ample time for your application to be reviewed before you plan to volunteer.

You must submit an application if you plan to:

  • Chaperone a field trip

  • Advise a club or sports team

  • Participate in mentor groups

  • Work with students unsupervised

You do not have to submit an application if you are:

  • Visiting for lunch

  • Helping in the library or office

  • A college student in classrooms for program credit

  • 18 & under

  • A supervised classroom helper such as a room mom, assisting with a class party, etc.

Once your application has been approved, check below for opportunities to volunteer

Please note: The volunteer application platform is best viewed on a computer.  Mobile devices may not display the screen correctly.

Volunteer Opportunities

Search by activity or school. Please note, many opportunities require an approved volunteer application which includes a background check. If a volunteer application is required, it will be noted in the listing. Allow plenty of time before the volunteer event for your application to be reviewed. If you have questions about a particular volunteer opportunity, contact the school.
