HOW DO I BECOME A VOLUNTEER?


Thank you for your interest in becoming a volunteer for the Eastern York School District. EYSD has implemented a new volunteer registration procedure which became effective November 1, 2021. This procedure will replace the paper application that was previously utilized. All new and returning volunteers must complete the online volunteer registration procedure in order to be considered for approval for the remainder of the 2021/2022 school year.


This new registration procedure will consist of the following steps:

  1. Completion of the online registration form (see links below)

  2. Obtain and submit volunteer clearances. Clearances can be uploaded directly to your volunteer registration or submitted to HR in person or via email. If you believe you already have current clearances on file with the District please contact Kyle Hinkle (using the contact information below) to confirm their status.

  3. Print, sign and submit the Volunteer COVID Waiver, Volunteer Disclosure Statement and Volunteer Act 24 Form. Signed documents can be uploaded directly to your volunteer registration form or submitted to HR in person or via email. Documents can be found here - Volunteer Registration Documents_21/22 . If you are unable to print the documents, paper copies will be available in all District offices.

  4. Obtain a TB test result only if you wish to be an Athletic/Co-Curricular volunteer or a School volunteer who will volunteer more than 10 hours in any week. Test result can be uploaded directly to your volunteer registration form or submitted to HR in person or via email.



Follow the appropriate link below to begin your Volunteer Registration:
