• Thank you for your interest in volunteering with Columbia Public Schools.  No matter what your interests, there's something for everyone in our volunteer program.  With 37 buildings, the Columbia Public School District offers something for every volunteer's interest.

    The philosophy of the Volunteers in Columbia Schools Program embodies the belief that community participation in the schools enriches the school program and fosters the public’s interest in our schools, both of which can make a positive difference in the educational environment.

    Experience helping children learn and grow into responsible community members.  We welcome you to an experience that will enrich your life and the lives of the students and teachers you will impact. Whether you want to exercise your green thumb, coach a team, read to children, or paint a picture we can place you in a volunteer assignment that you'll enjoy. 

    Parents, grandparents, senior citizens, business partners, university and college students, and community members enrich school district programs by increasing productivity and effectiveness.  Volunteers provide students with positive role models and build a link between schools and communities.


    The Columbia Public Schools Volunteer program is a "school-based" program. All volunteering will occur at the school site. For more information contact:
