Make a Difference in a Child’s Life
Volunteers directly enhance the relationship between the school, home and community. Parent volunteers strengthen their ties with their child’s school. Community volunteers and mentors provide a bond between the student and an adult.
Volunteers also have a tremendous impact on the overall success of the educational system. They allow teachers and staff more time for instruction. They also provide a chance for students to have one-on-one learning.
The purpose is to utilize the talents of individuals within the regular school program and to provide greater educational opportunities and services for students.
