Get Involved - Be a WPS Volunteer!

  • Wichita Public Schools will begin accepting volunteer registrations for the 2022-23 school year on August 1. 

    We look forward to welcoming volunteers and partners into Wichita Public Schools buildings again in Fall 2022 (with appropriate pandemic protocols in place as called for by the status of our community's health). All individuals volunteering in a WPS school, including parents, are required to register as a volunteer every year. This registration allows us to conduct a background check on all volunteers to ensure the safety of our students, staff and visitors. It also provides us the information needed to contact volunteers in the event of schedule changes or building closures. 

    All volunteers and visitors are encouraged to wear masks or appropriate face coverings if they prefer. For more information on COVID-19 protocols, please visit

    If you are most interested in mentoring a student, we encourage you to first explore mentoring through one of our fantastic community partners listed on the mentoring section. These organizations are skilled facilitators of mentor relationships and provide many ways to connect with students who are part of Wichita Public Schools.
