Liberty Public Schools, serving 12,747 students this year!

Thank you!

Our community plays a huge part in real world experiences for our students. Your help is essential to our success. We had hundreds of volunteers that helped us for the High School Job Fair, Middle School Shadow Search Day, Innovation Network, Business Tours, Mock Interviews, Future Finance at each school, various career panels and other activities. We could not give these relevant experiences to our students without you.


We hope to see you again next year!

Career Panels

Liberty's High Schools have experts sit on panels to share knowledge of your job with our students. We need help in many fields. Sign up here to participate.

Youth Mentors

Liberty volunteers worked over 1,200 hours this year. Join us next year to make a wonderful impact! Over the last 15 years we’ve had over 300 volunteers donate over 18,000 hours.
