During Distance Learning

For the 2020 - 2021 school year, all individual volunteer activities in MPS schools will be on hold while students are in Distance Learning. In the interest of student safety and data privacy, volunteers cannot participate in lessons or have direct unsupervised contact with minor students via email, phone, video, or other means.  We will begin to phase volunteers physically back into schools once it is safe to do so.  Please visit https://volmps.mpls.k12.mn.us/ for regualr updates or to find one of our partners currently looking for volunteers.
