The Little Rock School District has a variety of volunteer opportunities on each of our 43 campuses. Volunteers in Public Schools (ViPS) provides support and coordination for programs that connect volunteers to schools and students.
To begin the placement process, please download a volunteer application.
All Little Rock School District parents and volunteers are encouraged to register with ViPS.
Registration guarantees you the most up-to-date information about volunteer and parental involvement opportunities - without obligation. When you register, you will have password access to report your service and send and receive messages. Registration is required in order to use the online services.
Registration with ViPS is the only way to track and document your individual volunteer service activity, which is an excellent way to begin building your own personal volunteer portfolio while supporting public education.
If you already volunteer, you must register with our new system in order to have access to all online services. Remember, your password will not be accepted until your request is processed. Please allow 2 business days for your initial registration request to be processed.
