Welcome Back to Fall

The 2018-2019 school year has begun. Are you ready to get back into the classroom with us? Volunteer opportunities are being added everyday at all grade levels. Please see our new opportunities page. Volunteers can search listings by zip code, school name, use the interactive map, or try the advanced search to view by semester, grade level, program name, or delivery methods. Volunteers can also register for an account to view their classroom sign up or make changes to personal information at anytime throughout the year.

BPS Volunteer Security Checks

Please note that Brevard Public Schools have changed their security protocols for the 2018-2019 school year: Background checks with fingerprinting are now required for all volunteers that go to schools on a repeat basis. If you have a current Level A or A+ background on file that is not expired, you may continue to use this until expiration, then you will need to convert to the new system. There is a $35 fee for the first year and $8 for each renewal year. Please see the  BPS website for more details.
