Volunteer Program Process

Please read the following directions explaining how to process school volunteer applications.

Online Application – submitted by the prospective volunteerVolunteer Program Logo

Any person interested in participating in a school’s volunteer program, including continuing volunteers, LAUSD employees, community members, and interns, must complete the online volunteer application on the School Volunteer Management System.  A volunteer can access the online registration process and application at https://volunteerapp.lausd.net

If a person does not have access to the necessary technology to complete the online volunteer application, the school will designate an employee to assist in completing and submitting the online application on the person’s behalf. Volunteers serving at more than one LAUSD school must have a completed online application, printed and signed, for each school before they can begin service.

Once on the registration site, the prospective volunteers will be required to enter their names and valid email accounts. The prospective volunteer will receive an email notification to complete the registration process, including the creation of an account password.

Once the online volunteer application is completed, it should then be submitted electronically.  Both the application and Volunteer Commitment Form (English) (Spanish) should be printed, signed and delivered to the principal or the principal’s designee.

A Tier I volunteer for a single event that takes place for the duration of one day only does not need to submit an application (See Attachment A1 and A2 on Bulletin (6746.2) in the online Volunteer Management System, but must fill out the Tier I Single Event Volunteer Form, be checked by a school administrator against the California Megan’s Law online database at http://www.meganslaw.ca.gov, and sign the Volunteer Commitment form before being approved by the site administrator.

Online Application Review – submitted by the school

For Tier II and III Volunteers, the school must review (ensure required fields are completed) and submit the online application for all individuals applying to become certified volunteers. The school principal must verify and approve that the volunteer has met all requirements, including:

 

  • Completed application, printed and signed, kept on file
  • Signed Volunteer Commitment Form
  • Megan’s Law clearance
  • Tuberculosis test clearance
  • Fingerprinting (when applicable)
