Become a DCPS Volunteer

Volunteers are a vital part of student success in Duval County Public Schools. More than 27,000 volunteers support schools each year and the number is growing. The employees of the Department of Community and Family Engagement work hand and hand with volunteer liaisons at schools to encourage interested parents and citizens to join us in our mission to provide every student with a high quality education. You can help by becoming a volunteer today.

To ensure the safety of our students, volunteers  who will be at the school more than once, must complete an application and undergo a criminal background screening, free of charge. Please note–DCPS is no longer using volunteer cards as proof of clearance. Designated school staff will verify volunteer clearance using our online process. Anyone, including parents, who will visit the campus more than once to help must complete the process.

Teacher Supply Depot

Teacher Suply Depote

The Teacher Supply Depot Needs High School-aged volunteers YEAR ‘ROUND!

  Students who need creative hours for the IB program are also welcome.  Please wear comfortable work clothes that could get dirty.  An emergency contact phone number for anyone under 18 who is not accompanied by an adult will be required. Give Chris Buckley a call or email at the Depot: 904.381.7480,  BuckleyC@duvalschools.org.  The Teacher Supply Depot is located at 3108 Lenox Avenue.

What is the Teachers Depot

The Teacher Supply Depot is a warehouse of reusable materials donated by businesses and community members.  These materials are distributed free to public school teachers to enhance instruction in their classroom and promote student achievement.

What kinds of things can be found at the Teacher Supply Depot?

Most of the items donated to the Teacher Supply Depot were destined for the landfill.  Instead of adding to the county’s solid waste disposal difficulties, these materials now end up as creative student projects and innovative teaching aids.  Items include art, holiday, office, paper and science supplies; student incentives and children’s books; overruns; punch-outs; end cuts and many other open ended materials.

Teacher Supply Depot Making a Difference

Since its first opening in September of 1996, more than 1,400 contributors donated over $65 million worth of supplies.  By the end of the 2015-2016 school year, the Teacher Supply Depot conducted 218 give-away days logging over 69,000 teacher, principal and PTA president visits.

The Teacher Supply Depot enjoys tremendous support from the business community, volunteers, the media and the many other individuals who are contributors.  This project is a joint effort between the Duval County Public Schools’ Warehousing Division, Community and Family Engagement and the Duval County Council of PTAs/PTSAs.
