How to Volunteer

  • Thank you for your interest in becoming a volunteer with Yelm Community Schools. Volunteers are a vital part of our students' education.

    To volunteer an online volunteer application must be completed. All applications are run through the Washington Access to Criminal History (WATCH) as part of the clearance process.  An applicant's WATCH report must return "cleared" from the WSP in order to become a volunteer.  There are other steps to complete when a report returns with a status other than cleared.

    All online volunteer applications are cleared for one current school year only.

    If you have additional questions or need assistance, please contact our Volunteer Coordinator at 360-458-6100
