About Volunteering

Volunteers are vital to the CAEP Accreditation process. We need professionals dedicated to improving education for P-12 learners – through quality educator preparation.

More than 1,200 committed professionals from various sectors, including P-12 teachers, policymakers, teacher educators, employers, parents, school board members, public at-large and stakeholders, serve the CAEP Volunteer Corps in a variety of roles. Not only does CAEP seek diversity of affiliation and experience, but ethnic, gender, age, and regional diversity as well. Diversity in our Volunteer Corps is essential in representing today’s P-12 learners.

Volunteers are the backbone of accreditation, and assure the quality of educator preparation providers. They participate in the process by providing leadership, evaluating assessments used to gauge performance, visiting providers to seek evidence that standards are being met, participate in accreditation decisions, as well as provide leadership to CAEP on its strategic goals.

We need your help to achieve our mission: to advance excellent educator preparation through evidence-based accreditation that assures quality and supports continuous improvement to strengthen P-12 student learning.

The Volunteer Application Portal is Open at this time.
