How can I sign up to volunteer?

Volunteer Registration with WCPSS

For Band Camp we will need parent volunteers to assist with meals and snacks for each day of the Marching Band members’ band camp, as well as Band Parent Assistants during the day to help make sure that students who need assistance can easily get this. We will also need parent volunteers for the upcoming Band’s Uniform Fitting process.

There will be further detailed information in Sign-Up Genius program for these and all volunteer opportunities coming up including helping out with football games, competitions, and mini camps. So be on the lookout for those future needs. There will be several soon!

In order to volunteer you must go through: VOLUNTEER CLEARANCE

If you are doing any work with the concert bands, color guards, marching bands, or the winter groups it is essential that you register with the Wake County Public School System to get your clearance.

If you were already registered last year, you need to reactivate your registration and register again!

To register you can go to any Wake County Public school – just call the school you will use to confirm summer hours until classes start up again. Any questions please let us know!

Sign Up Genius

We use Sign Up Genius to let people know about upcoming volunteer events where help is needed. This sign up list is not the same one that is used for PNC work. It is for parades, football, dinners and other events.

If you wish to volunteer, you have to be added to the Sign Up Genius contact list. Please send a note to Michelle Stratford with the subject line “Please Add me to Sign Up Genius”.
