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 2-4 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.

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.
