The Volunteer Program of the Baltimore County Public Schools (BCPS) promotes the successful recruitments, engagement,and retention of non-paid individuals in support of the school system’s mission.  Westowne’s program objectives include, but are not limited to:

  • Supporting the Westowne staff in sustaining an effective learning environment
  • Assisting the Westowne staff with non-teaching duties
  • Reinforcing instruction of the teacher in the classroom setting
  • Enriching the experiences of students
  • Building better understanding of school system objectives among community and stakeholders
  • Stimulating widespread community support for public education and the mission of the Baltimore County Public Schools

Before volunteering in any BCPS capacity (including chaperoning for a field trip), a volunteer must complete the BCPS volunteer screening process, which includes submitting a signed BCPS Application for Volunteer Services, as well as watching a short video and taking a quiz.  You will need to submit your application along with the certificate of completion to Westowne..  Returning volunteers still need to complete the entire application process.
