Please read the following directions explaining the process for applying to volunteer and approving school volunteer applications.
Any person interested in participating in a school’s volunteer program, including continuing volunteers, prospective virtual volunteers, prospective on-campus volunteers, LAUSD employees, community members and interns, must complete the online volunteer application on the School Volunteer Management System.
A volunteer can access the online registration process and application at https://volunteerapp.lausd.net.
If a person does not have access to the necessary technology to complete the online volunteer application, the school will designate an employee to assist in completing and submitting the online application on the person’s behalf. Volunteers serving at more than one LAUSD school must have a approved online application for each school before they can begin service.
As of Spring 2021, a waiver of liability is required to participate in on-campus volunteering in the Los Angeles Unified School District School Volunteer Program, showing agreement to the terms and release of liability.
Once the online volunteer application is completed and submitted electronically, both the application may be approved or denied by the site principal or the principal’s designee.
- Select “I am a LAUSD parent/guardian” or “I am a LAUSD community member.”
- Click on “Register for a LAUSD Parent/Guardian Account.” Once on the LAUSD Parent/Guardian Account registration site, a prospective volunteer will be required to enter their name and a valid email account. Prospective volunteers will receive an email to complete the registration process, including the creation of an account password.
Online Application Submission
Once the application is complete, the application must be printed and submitted to the school along with the Signed Volunteer Commitment Form and Tuberculosis Test Clearance. The school must review (ensure required fields are completed).

All prospective volunteers are required to have the TB Risk Assessment Questionnaire administered by a licensed health care provider.
