UPDATE as of 7/1/21:

Thank you for your interest in supporting MPS students through volunteering. Due to ongoing uncertainty caused by COVID-19, we are not sure right now what volunteering looks like for the 2021-22 school year. We expect to know more in early August and will provide updates at that time. If you want to be among the first to know what’s happening, you can sign up here.

Please know that volunteering in MPS is not the only way to support students, schools and the MPS community. Here are some of our partners who are seeking volunteer support at this time:

  • MPS Adult Education - has opportunities for volunteers to provide virtual tutoring support to adult English Language Learner (ELL) students.  For more info, contact: charlene.vang@mpls.k12.mn.us.

  • The Food Group In response to an unprecedented demand for food, The Food Group is now open for groups of up to 14 volunteers to serve the community.  Individuals can sign-up here, Groups of up to 14 volunteers can sign up by contacting: djohnson@thefoodgroupmn.org.

  • Reading Partners volunteers provide literacy tutoring to MPS elementary students.  Serve as little as one hour a week.  Extensive training provided.  Tutors will work with students virtually until classes resume in-person.
