Become a Volunteer

  • To get started on becoming a volunteer, complete one of the volunteer information forms below. After submitting the online form, you will receive an email with instructions on how to complete the required online criminal background check. Typically, volunteers are asked to commit to volunteering for a full school year or a minimum of 20 hours before leaving the program. All volunteers must be 14 years of age or older.

    All volunteers are asked to:

    • Step 1: Complete an online volunteer application form (See below).
    • Step 2: Complete a criminal background check (Instructions will be sent via email).
    • Step 3: Attend Volunteer Orientation.
      Note: Orientations are held monthly. In order to attend orientation, you must have received notification of a cleared background check. For the most updated orientation schedule, please contact Community Ed at 320-370-8200.
      (Field trip and special event volunteers are not required to complete orientation)
