Get Involved

Volunteers fill an important role in all our Tacoma Public Schools. 

Dedicated volunteers can mentor and inspire students and provide new opportunities beyond what schools can. Today, it takes a whole village to educate and prepare students for living and working in the 21st century. Whether you are a member of your community with no children in school, a parent interested in helping in a classroom or a motivated student looking to give back, the Tacoma Public Schools can use your help!

To get started
