Think about how happy you are when you're doing what you love. Now, imagine sharing that passion with others. What better feeling is there?  Whether you are a student seeking community service opportunities, a family member seeking to become more involved in the education of your children, a retired or senior citizen seeking an outlet for your talents, experiences, and skills, or a corporation wishing to give your employees greater opportunity to be involved in their community, the Volunteer Services program has the answer to your needs.

Why Volunteer?

We value family and community engagement in school activities and believe that volunteer involvement can have a positive impact on a child’s education.The goals of a school volunteer program are to:

  • Increase family engagement in public education
  • Encourage schools to use other pools of volunteers including students, senior citizens, service clubs and businesses
  • Provide assistance to classroom teachers and other educators
  • Improve communication between the schools and the communities they serve.

Each day, volunteers display selfless acts of service to assure that all Albuquerque Public School students receive a quality education in a safe and secure learning environment.

Background Clearance

While encouraging parent participation, we must also consider the safety of every child in the district by requiring a background check from volunteers prior to any volunteer activity at any APS school.

The background check will be conducted based on information obtained within the online application.
