All volunteers must register online. All volunteers must pass an annual criminal background check before they can participate as a volunteer. Please follow the steps below to become a VIPS:
Once you have registered, you must go in person to the school of interest and show proof of identification.
What type of identification is accepted?
- Texas Driver’s License
- Official Passport
- Texas Identification Card
- Official U. S. Military ID
- Driver’s License (issued by any state in the U.S.)
- Matricula Consular
- Identification Card (issued by any state in the U.S.)
- Resident Alien Card
Identification information will go into our database for processing by the Volunteer Coordinator at each campus.
The criminal history background check can take 2-3 weeks to complete.
Once you are CLEARED to volunteer, you are eligible to volunteer throughout HISD.
Our students benefit when we all volunteer!
