Volunteering at Maplewood

Why get involved?

Volunteers are the heart and soul of our School. Volunteering your time saves allows our teachers and administrators to focus more time on educating children.

There are many ways to get involved in the Maplewood community: mentoring and tutoring students, helping with events, taking on leadership roles, beautifying campus grounds, fundraising, advocacy, communications, health and fitness, food pantry, office help and much more!

Annual Background Check

Austin Partners in Education (APIE) requires a background check for all volunteers who work alone with students such as mentoring and tutoring without faculty or staff supervision. It is a good safety measure for anyone who is volunteering in a location regularly, such as the library or office area to register for the free background check thru www.austinpartners.org.

  1. Go to www.austinpartners.org
  2. Click on the blue-round Volunteer button
  3. Then click on the round School-Based Volunteer button
  4. Skip the donation and click on link to continue to registration without donation
