Volunteer at Pinewood

Welcome Volunteers


Thank you for your interest in volunteering in Baltimore County Public Schools. Our schools depend on volunteers and value their contributions to enhance the programs and services provided for students. Volunteers are important members of Team BCPS and help our professional staff sustain effective learning environments, enrich the education and experiences of students and build critical partnerships to increase achievement for all students. Volunteers are essential to the educational process, as they bring knowledge and skills into our schools and strengthen classroom instruction.


All volunteers must complete the online volunteer application annually.

Step 1: Complete the online BCPS Application for Volunteer Services. https://bcpscos.ss3.sharpschool.com/departments/communications/family_and_community_engagement/b_c_p_s_volunteers

Step 2: You will be provided with a certificate once you successfully complete the training.    

Step 3:  Volunteers should provide a hard copy of both the application and the valid training certificate to the school.  Both documents must be submitted at the same time to be accepted and reviewed by the school staff.

Once the application is reviewed and training has been verified, we will be glad to have you as a valued volunteer at Pinewood Elementary!
