“Volunteers do not necessarily have the time; they just have the heart.
We love our volunteers!
You are why it is great to be in Mashpee.
Want to be a volunteer? We would love to have you! We believe volunteers are vital to the success of the school and the students they serve. Volunteering for Mashpee Public Schools (MPS) is a great way to experience MPS from the inside and make things better for students and teachers.
We have a wide range of activities and there are countless ways you can lend a hand. For most opportunities, there is no experience necessary and no special skills required. A willingness to help will qualify you for many jobs, ranging from a one-time event to a weekly commitment. Still unsure how you can contribute? Come by the #WeAreMashpee site, at Mashpee Commons, and I’d be happy to help you.
Not sure what to do first? Here’s a guide to help you discover all the ways you can connect.
The Nitty Gritty
1. First fill out a Volunteer Application so we can get to know you and how you would like to help. Applications can be submitted online or dropped off at a school or the #WeAreMashpee site in the Mashpee Commons.
2. Next, all volunteers must have a CORI (Criminal offender record information) on file. Print the CORI Form and visit the superintendent’s office, with your picture ID. Once CORI is cleared you will obtain a picture ID from the Superintendent’s office which is to be worn at all times while in a school building.
3. Mashpee volunteers are expected to use discretion and treat all information as confidential. As a Mashpee Volunteer it is your responsibility to maintain the confidentiality of employee or student information, both written and verbal. Any matter of concern should be taken to the teacher or school principal.
