• Volunteer and Agreement Requirements

    If you are interested in volunteering at one of our schools or entering into an agreement with the District, please review our Background Clearance Guidance document which outlines the requirements for persons seeking to enter into an agreement with, work at, volunteer in, or visit a Detroit Public Schools Community District school building or facility. 


    The Department of Partnerships collaborates with District staff, industry partners, community members, and families to help support exceptional learning environments for every child, every day. Our team is committed to closing the gap and providing services in three targeted areas that support the District's strategic vision: Partnerships, Grants, and Donations. We look forward to working with you to secure resources, foster connections, provide training, and advance educational outcomes for all our students.
