School Volunteer Program Registration
Whether you have a few hours a week or a few days a month to spare, your time and involvement can make a significant impact on academic success, personal development, and the overall experience of our school community.
Volunteer roles can vary depending on your interests and expertise. Below are some examples of how you can contribute:
1. Tutoring and Mentoring: Help students with their homework, provide academic support in specific subjects, or serve as a mentor to inspire and guide them.
2. Classroom Assistance: Assist teachers in organizing activities, preparing materials, and managing students during lessons. Your presence can provide additional attention and support to students.
3. Special Events and Extracurricular Activities: Join school events, such as field trips, sports days, or art projects, to enhance students' experiences and encourage their participation.
4. Administrative support: Offer your skills in administrative tasks like organizing files, data entry, or assisting with fundraising efforts.
5. Language Support: If you have proficiency in a second language, you can help students with language acquisition or act as a translator for non-English-speaking families during school events.
6. MDCPS Partner: Have a business? Are you part of an organization? Be an M-DCPS Partner and adopt a school. Provide resources through in-kind and monetary services that support students and staff.
