Volunteering in CMS

"Volunteers are the only human beings on the face of the earth who reflect this nation's compassion, unselfish caring, patience, and just plain loving one another." - Erma Bombeck


Volunteering in CMS

Welcome to Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools! Thank you for considering donating your time, treasure and talent to support CMS students. We know that educating the whole child takes the whole community, and we also know that everyone has something to give. In fact, we rely on families and community members to supplement the hard work of our teaching staff. Thank you again for your interest!​

In order to guide you through the process of volunteering in CMS, we’ve outlined the process here:​​


Volunteer Personal Information

When you register, you will establish a personal user name and password for your profile information. You will use this regularly to update your information and to log in your volunteer hours. Your profile information is available to the volunteer coordinator at the school(s) you select as your preferred school(s), CMS Law Enforcement and the district’s volunteer supervisor. We will not give your information to anyone else. After researching the safest way to store volunteer data, we have opted for a secure Web server not housed at CMS and used by many local banks. CMS also follows North Carolina laws limiting access to volunteer information.

Again, thank you for volunteering in our schools.

  • Organize a volunteer program
  • Be a speaker for schools
  • Organize career days or college tours
