Thank you so much for visiting! I hope this means you are interested in becoming a school volunteer or keeping your information current!
Volunteering makes such a huge difference to the students, teachers and volunteers. It shows the students that they are important and that school is important as well. Your support is crucial as these precious kids grow and work their way through school.
Volunteer opportunities are listed in HelpCounter, our volunteer software program. Only approved volunteers have access to sign up for activities to volunteer for. For the safety of our students, staff and other volunteers, only background checked, approved volunteers are allowed to be with students. Therefore, the only way to sign up for volunteering is through our software program. The safety of our schools and students is very important.
If you have questions, please do not hesitate to contact me at email@example.com. I would love to help you get started or answer any questions you have!
