Apply to Volunteer

  • Before receiving a volunteer assignment, volunteers must complete three forms: a Volunteer Application, a Volunteer Survey, and a Missouri Request for Child Abuse or Neglect/Highway Patrol Criminal Record Check form.

    Community volunteers do not pay any fees to have background checks processed. All information is strictly confidential.  Upon receipt of your paperwork, please allow 5-10 business days to process.  Once all paperwork has been processed, volunteers and schools will be contacted regarding their training and volunteer assignment.   

    Submit volunteer paperwork to: 
    Attn: Community Relations Office 
    Columbia Public Schools
    1818 W. Worley Street
    Columbia, MO  65203

    Should you need additional info or assistance e-mail us at or call 573-214-3960.

    Thank you for your support of the community and Columbia Public Schools. Your contribution makes a difference!
