Volunteer Opportunities Available - Make sure you apply and are approved or reactivate if you are a returning volunteer on Volunteers Count so you can volunteer at our schools! 

Follow us on Facebook! We will post opportunities as they are sent to us from the schools. 

How to Become a Volunteer

  • Sign up online to be a volunteer on Volunteers Count! This will take you through a background check questionnaire. You can also fill the out at a school near you or the Volunteer and Partnership Office. 
  • Contact a school near you. If you know where you want to volunteer, contact that school’s Volunteer Coordinator directly to match your interest with the school’s need. 
  • Explore volunteer needs. If you aren’t sure where you want to volunteer or what you want to do, call the school district’s Office of Community Involvement to learn about volunteer needs and opportunities (941.927.9000 ext. 31500).
  • Find the best fit. If you have a specific volunteer skill or interest, call the school district’s Office of Community Involvement to find a school that needs your specific skill (941.927.9000 ext. 31500).
    **If your specific volunteer opportunity requires a Level 2 Background check, please contact the Safety and Security Department at (941) 927-9000 ext. 31132.**

How to Become a Business Partner

  • Sign up online to be a business partner on the TeamUP Portal! This will ask you which school(s) you would like to partner with.
  • Contact the school(s) you would like to partner with. Once you sign up, reach out to the school(s) and ask for the Business Partner Coordinator and let them know you have signed up and are interested in partnering.
