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. Visit the SCDSB Community Apps page to begin the process to register as a volunteer.  NOTE: In order to be a volunteer at a SCDSB school, you must complete a Vulnerable Sector Check (VSC). Many police services offer online record checks. Contact your local police station for more information.
