Ready to Start?

The District requires all prospective volunteers to certify eligibility prior to beginning service (including fingerprinting), regardless if you have volunteered with GUSD in prior years. Complete the process in four easy steps:

Complete the GUSD Volunteer Interest Form.
This is the first step in the clearance process, and does not automatically certify you to volunteer.  Note: you must provide an email address that you access regularly.  All communication about volunteer clearance is sent via email.

Wait for an email from TalentEd to provide further instructions.
TalentEd is the district's volunteer management platform.  After completing Volunteer Interest Form, you can expect an email from TalentEd with instructions on creating an account in the platform so you can submit the required documentation.

Complete the volunteer registration checklist in TalentEd. 
You can collect most of this information before completing the volunteer checklist. Note: you will be asked to provide your student's ID number in the platform, in addition to the required documentation.  

Wait for confirmation of clearance
Once your registration checklist has been verified by the Human Resources Department, you'll receive an email indicating your information has been accepted and next steps.
