Your involvement as a volunteer can make a valuable contribution to education in Henrico County. While volunteer tasks vary with the needs of individual schools, your help is needed. Volunteers can serve as classroom aides, clerical assistants in the office and library, tutors, chaperones, resource persons in a given area of expertise, and in other capacities. Volunteers can improve the school environment, resulting in better academic and social development for students.
If you would like to become a volunteer, please complete the volunteer/mentor application and take it to the school at which you would like to volunteer. If you have questions about volunteer opportunities, please contact individual schools. Use our School Locator tool to find a school in your neighborhood.
Information on background checks for volunteers
The safety and security of the school community is a top priority of Henrico County Public Schools. For your protection and that of the students and staff, the school division conducts a check on all school personnel and volunteers with the National Sex Offender Public website. This includes the Virginia State Police Registry of Sexual Offenders and Crimes against Minors. Anyone convicted of a misdemeanor or felony offense, especially an offense against a minor, may be disqualified from volunteering depending upon the nature of the offense and the nature of the school volunteer activity.
