Our Schools
Listing school preferences on your volunteer application aids us in placing you more quickly. If you do not have a specific school in mind, please look through our schools' location, start times, and special programs, and list any preferences on your volunteer application. We will do our best to place you based on your listed preferences, but cannot guarantee that we will be able to accommodate all needs.
We have 70 schools in the Minneapolis Public Schools. Our district map can give you a sense of schools that are near where you live or work. Most of our schools are easily accessible by public transportation.
Special Programs
If you are looking for a specialized program, such as bilingual education, arts programming, or advanced coursework, you can find out which schools offer these programs through our school choice websites. *This is especially useful for college students seeking classroom experience in a specific licensure area.*
Our schools have several different start and end times, listed below. The vast majority of our volunteer opportunities are available during the school day, so choose schools with start times that best fit your schedule.
