UNITED FOR SUCCESS: MPS VOLUNTEERS
Midland Public Schools Volunteer Applications and Screening
Welcome to United for Success, the new volunteer program for Midland Public Schools. Thank you for your interest in becoming a volunteer.
Below you can learn more about each volunteerism level we offer at MPS. All applicants must complete and submit the application as well as pass a background check. Background checks are processed manually with ICHAT through the Michigan State Police. Level 3 volunteers will need to be fingerprinted. Volunteer Opportunites can be viewed on the United Way website under United for Success or the MPS website at new.midlandps.org/volunteer.
If you have already registered in United Success, BUT need to change your Level, please contact the volunteer manager. DO NOT create another account and re-register, it is not necessary, and will likely cause a delay is completing the process for the change.
If you are registering to drive, please register as a Level 2 volunteer and contact the volunteer manger to ease the processing time. If you are not planning to drive, you can register as a Level 3 if needed. If you have questions about this or want to know how to keep your fingerprints active, please contact the volunteer manager.
Level 1 Volunteers
A Level 1 volunteer position involves student interaction. Examples include: after school assistance, club leader, day field trip chaperone, Hallway Hero, PYP Exhibition Mentor, Reading Buddy, Picture Parent, and volunteers within the library, classroom, lunchroom, playground, or at special events. Level 1 is the most common.
Level 2 Volunteers
Level 2 volunteers have all the clearance of a Level 1 volunteer, but are qualified to drive students to activities off school grounds such as performances, athletic events or competitions. This level is usually used when a driver is needed for students because a school bus is unavailable.
Level 3 Vounteers
Level 3 volunteer positions involve unsupervised, direct contact with students in various settings such as overnight school trips or volunteer athletic coaches. Most volunteers for MPS WILL NOT be a Level 3.
