Types of Volunteering Opportunities Available

Classroom Instructional Volunteer: For those who enjoy working directly with individual or small groups of students, volunteers are needed to listen to students read, reinforce basic math, or assist students with written assignments.

Classroom Assistance Volunteer: Classroom volunteers perform tasks such as putting up bulletin boards, correcting papers, preparing materials, photocopying, and other jobs to provide the teacher with more time for planning and teaching students.

Library or Media Center Volunteer: Assistance to the media center specialist can be provided by repairing and shelving books, completing clerical tasks or preparing bulletin boards and displays. Volunteers may also choose to work directly with students helping them to locate and use library materials.

Other Assignments: Volunteers also assist with after school clubs, act as coaching assistants, and help with other programming.  Volunteers can also chaperone field trips, or even serve as guest speakers. (If you are volunteering for an overnight field trip, please remember it can take up to six weeks to get fingerprint clearance.)
