Volunteers are an important part of what makes our schools great places to learn and grow. We value and appreciate the support of our volunteers. Volunteers have various roles at our schools including:

  • School council members and participants
  • Hot lunch day organizers
  • Field trip supervisors

  • Classroom helpers

  • Kiss-n-ride supervisors

Please contact your local school's office if you’re interested in volunteering and would like to know more about the opportunities available.

To become a volunteer in a Simcoe County District School Board school, you must:

  1. Create an account within the Volunteer Portal through SCDSB Community Apps. Please remember to choose the school you wish to volunteer with. 

  2. Complete accessibility training.

  3. Submit a current (dated within six months) Vulnerable Sector Check (VSC). Schools require all VSC’s to be in their original form and emailed directly to the school for processing. Please note, volunteers are unable to upload VSC’s directly to the Volunteer Portal.

If you do not have a computer or require assistance, please contact the school.


Current volunteers

Current approved volunteers must keep their Community Apps account/Volunteer Portal information up-to-date with email address changes. Communication is sent throughout the year to the provided email address with respect to timelines, necessary requirements, etc. regarding your volunteer status. Instructions on how to change your email address in Community Apps can be found here. Updating your email address in your Community Apps account will automatically update your email address in your Volunteer Portal.
