• Volunteer opportunities

    Volunteer Services is coordinated by Anoka-Hennepin Parent Involvement, a Community Education program. Anoka-Hennepin Schools are grateful that each year, over 10,000 dedicated volunteers contribute thousands of hours of their time, energy and talents to support our schools, students and staff.

    Each elementary, middle and high school is assigned a Volunteer Service Coordinator (VSC) to coordinate volunteer work. View the VSC directory to contact a school of your choice.
     

    How to volunteer

    Volunteers may contact the school district volunteer services office to be assigned to a school with specific needs, or they may volunteer at a school of their choice.
     
    All volunteers must complete:

    • An online volunteer application for each school where they wish to volunteer
      -The online application needs to be completed each school year and to begin the application process, click here to find your desired school. 
      -Use the Volunteer Application Instructions for assistance in completing the form.

    • An online criminal record history release (CRHR) form
      -Once you have completed the application, you will be directed to complete the CRHR. As part of the process, Anoka-Hennepin Schools must obtain information and permission to conduct a background check on your criminal record history through Trusted Employees. If you have any questions, please contact Trusted Employees at 1-888-389-4023 or your school's volunteer services coordinator. 

     

    Once you have completed the volunteer application and CRHR, your school's volunteer services coordinator will send you an email letting you know you are approved to begin volunteering. If you need assistance completing either form, contact the volunteer coordinator at your school or the district's volunteer services supervisor.
