Volunteers change our world... and are changing our schools

  • Be a School Volunteer!

    • Marion County Public Schools’ Volunteer Program is a district-wide effort encouraging and promoting community involvement.
    • As partners in helping children learn your sacrifice in our classrooms is invaluable and highly beneficial.
    • By sharing your time and talent, you help enrich the learning experience for students and provide much needed support for our school system.
    • Everyone who comes into Marion County Public Schools has a valuable part to play in making this the best place it can be for learning.

    • Each school in the county has different needs, but the need that exists across the county is community involvement and support.
