  • Important Update - Opening Plan 2021-2022

    Face coverings will be optional for visitors and volunteers visiting district campuses. Volunteers and visitors will not be allowed on district and school campuses for the first 30 days of school. 

    *The HCPS Volunteer Application is not applicable for Charter Schools. If you are interested in volunteering at a Charter School, please contact the school directly. Do not complete this Volunteer Application.  Thank you. 


    Thank you for your interest in becoming a Hillsborough County Public Schools volunteer!  HCPS requires all volunteers and community partners to complete the HCPS Volunteer Application annually. Volunteer applications will expire based on submission date.

    Completing the HCPS Volunteer Application is the first step in the process for volunteering in one of our schools. The volunteer application process includes Volunteer Policy Acknowledgement, Information Collection and Background Check Authorization.

    All volunteers and community partners must complete the HCPS Volunteer Application annually. Applications expire one year from the date of submission and/or fingerprint expiration date.  Notices of renewal are sent to the applicants based on expiration date.  Submit application at least two weeks prior to any volunteer activity. Allow longer for Level 2 Fingerprinting.

    We are thankful to the many volunteers and community partners that say Y.E.S. (You Empower Students) every day to collaborate with us in preparing our students for life.  

    If you have any questions about the application, please contact the district’s Volunteer Services office.
