Thanking our volunteers during National Volunteer Week

National Volunteer WeekMilwaukee Public Schools wishes to thank the many volunteers who make a difference each year in the lives of students across the district. Before the pandemic, schools would benefit from more than 2,000 volunteers serving approximately 40,000 hours.

This year, hundreds of volunteers have supported students virtually! MPS schools have engaged volunteers for tutoring sessions, career presentations, mock interviews, and more. On Read Across America Day, representatives from the Milwaukee Brewers Baseball Club and ManpowerGroup spent time reading books and discussing favorite authors with children. Marquette University students and staff also partnered with schools to enrich educational experiences.

Get inspired! Each year, MPS recognizes its Most Valuable Volunteers. Read about this year’s superstars: Joyce Cable, Bud and Sara Hudson, Dr. Susan Larson, and Moira O’Brien-Bruce. Congratulations to these exceptional volunteers, and thank you for the energy you devote to our students.

We depend on our community to support students, teachers, and staff and to help provide children with high-quality educational programs in a positive environment. Virtual volunteers will continue to be welcome through the end of the school year.

For volunteers interested in joining students going back to school in fall, opportunities will be posted in August. Check back to learn more and fill out a volunteer application.
