District Volunteer Application


We truly appreciate your interest in volunteering for the Gates Chili Central School District! 

There is a long history of volunteerism associated with the Gates Chili Central School District. Over the years, parents and community members have willingly contributed their time and talents to promote student growth and learning. Volunteering makes a difference in your child’s education and research shows that children whose parents are involved in their school do better academically and socially. Being a school volunteer allows you to connect to the school community and make it a better place. At Gates Chili, we believe volunteers are an invaluable resource to our teachers and students.                                                                                                                                                                              Our district offers a variety of activities and opportunities you may choose from when volunteering your time. Simply complete and submit a volunteer application and you will receive instructions on next steps.  This application takes just a few minutes to complete.
