Chaperoning & Volunteering

The band program offers many opportunities to volunteer, and the program needs help in many areas all year long to keep things running smoothly!  Volunteer opportunities are announced via email and on the News page. They include, but are not limited to: chaperoning rehearsals, camps and competitions; coordinating trips, fundraisers and events; working at fundraisers to help with sales or distribution; selling tickets at the concerts; driving or moving band equipment for competitions or concerts; and attending Band Parent meetings!

Your kids may not tell you, but they really do like it when you’re there!

Volunteering is a great way to meet the kids and other parents and to become familiar with band routines.  Your time as a volunteer is always very much appreciated.

Volunteer Application Information

The School District of Palm Beach County requires all non-paid (volunteer) people who work with students, volunteer on campus or at school events to complete the District Volunteer Application. VOLUNTEERS MUST RE-REGISTER EVERY YEAR. All public schools use both Raptor and the Volunteers In Public Schools (VIPS) tracking system.

If you are not in the VIPS system, please go to the Main Office or the Volunteer Office in the Dwyer Administration Office to complete the application.

This requirement is necessary for the safety of our students – your children. It is also for the safety of our volunteers. All registered volunteers are covered by insurance when volunteering at the school.

Raptor

This system is used for background clearance.

VIPS

The VIPS system will be used for application completion and recording volunteer hours. Hours can be logged in on the VIPS tracking system computer. Sign-in stations are available in the Main Office or the Volunteer Office in the Dwyer Administration Office. If you are not able to enter your volunteer hours on the computer, us the Volunteer Service Hours Log and turn it into the Band Boosters.

Should you have any questions, please contact the Palm Beach County District Volunteer Coordinator, Debi Elfen, at 561-434-8789 or got to the Schools of Palm Beach County Volunteers website.
