Thank you for your interest in volunteering in our schools!

The Washington Unified School District (WUSD) is seeking volunteers who support our mission to support students in a community promoting family involvement, strong partnership, and school pride. Volunteer assistance in schools can significantly enrich the educational program, improve supervision of students, contribute to school safety, and strengthen relationships. 
 
Community involvement is essential to the success of the District. We believe that volunteer efforts support our belief that individuals require a community to thrive and we build responsibility through participation and service. We welcome all volunteers ready to contribute to the success of school events, activities, and daily learning experiences.
 
For the safety and well-being of students, the District requires all volunteers to complete the outlined process including a background clearance.
