2023-24 Volunteer Application

2023-24 Volunteer Opportunities

All new MPS volunteers must...

  1. Complete the volunteer application. New volunteer applications will be processed on Mondays.
  2. Review the online orientation and agree to the MPS Volunteer Expectations. Schools may require you to complete a school-specific volunteer orientation. 
  3. Some volunteer positions require you to complete a background check. 

Volunteer Background Checks 

Background checks are required for volunteers who will be working in an unsupervised role with students. School leaders decide which volunteer roles require a background check.

Requesting a Background Check

  1. Complete the volunteer background check request form.
  2. You will receive an email with a link to complete your background check online within 5 business days. The email will be sent from First Advantage and the subject line will read "kick off your background check".  Important: the link will be valid for 48 hours only; if you do not complete the check within 48 hours, you will need to request a new link.
  3. The school will notify you of your background check results. Please allow 2-3 weeks to complete the background check process before your volunteering begins. Once cleared, your background check results are valid for two years.
