Welcome

District Volunteer Application

Thank you for your interest in volunteering with Shelby County Schools. Volunteers support SCS in many ways: tutors, mentors, jurors, sports coaches, extracurricular assistants, classroom assistants, field trip chaperones.

Each year thousands of volunteers share their time with our students. Many more need your help! Volunteers bring a new perspective and enthusiasm into our schools while assisting students, teachers, and staff. Volunteers support SCS in many ways in programs designed to provide everyone with the opportunity to make a difference in our community.

Most volunteers must undergo a criminal background check before being placed in a school. It is very important that the information you enter on the application matches your government issued identification card including your full legal name. It is important that you provide a valid email address so you can be notified as to the status of your application and for future communication. If you are unable to provide an email address, you use the district’s email address. All information collected on the application will remain confidential and not be shared outside the volunteer program.

If you have questions about the type of screening you might need, you can ask your school or call the Division of Family and Community Engagement at 901-416-7600.


Thank you,

Office of Family and Community Engagement
