Volunteer & Community Services

Volunteer Program

Thank you for choosing to volunteer in the San Antonio Independent School District.  We hope the time you spend volunteering at SAISD is both fun and rewarding.

Who is a volunteer? 

The term volunteer is all inclusive of all categories or initiatives. This includes but not limited to all parent and community volunteers; boosters; chaperones; mentors; tutors; college student observers; business and community partners or any other person wanting to gain access, work or help in the school, (e.g., Student Teachers, Interns, Observers, Agency Nurses, etc.), or who intends to do business with the school or District where students and/or minors are present.  

Student Teachers, Interns, Observers, and Agency Nurses must go through Talent Management for placement, but still must complete all volunteer requirements including successfully completing a background check, completing the volunteer orientation, and completing the volunteer orientation quiz.

Registration requires an email account. This page will help you create an email account if you do not have one.

The Volunteer Process


All volunteers must submit an online application through App-Garden. 

Complete the volunteer orientation. 

Complete la orientación de voluntario en español.

Complete the volunteer orientation quiz

Complete la breve prueba en español. 

If the applicant successfully clears the background check, reviews the volunteer orientation, and completes the quiz, the application will be automatically approved within 48 business hours. The applicant and the campus will be notified with an approval email.

If the applicant's background check is flagged, he/she will receive an email stating that their application is on hold for further review. The application will then be reviewed by the Volunteer Approval and Denial (VAD) Committee. The applicant will be notified of their approval or denial status within two weeks of the application date.
