Volunteer Requirements

FGSD appreciates the amazing volunteers that put in many hours in our school helping our students succeed. As the safety of students is of primary importance, the following procedures are required for processing volunteer requests.


A completed online volunteer application must be submitted through the HelpCounter system and reviewed by district administration.

The volunteer will be required to complete the volunteer criminal history verification process and receive final approval from the Human Resources Department prior to beginning their volunteer service.
