Online Volunteer Application

Thank you for your interest in volunteering with Des Moines Public Schools!


Note about the online application:

Although the top of the page will say employment application, you are in the right place.  It typically takes 10-15 minutes to fill out the volunteer application.

The time it takes to process an application can vary from applicant to applicant. Please be patient, as it can take several weeks to complete all necessary steps if additional documentation and/or review is required. We encourage all potential volunteers to apply at least a couple of weeks before the activities you intend to support begin.

You will receive e-mail notification when the processing of your application is complete. Until you receive this confirmation, do not perform any volunteer activity at your selected school site.

You may be contacted by the District Volunteer Coordinator for further clarification about the answers you have provided on your application.
