So you want to... volunteer at school

Volunteers in schools are an integral part of helping students and teachers and building stronger communities. There are countless ways for you to give back, starting today.

For millions and millions of elementary, middle and high school students, volunteers play a crucial role. No longer confined to bake sales and PTA meetings, adults who give their time to schools may coach a sports team, sew a drama costume, set up a computer lab or provide mentorship for a high schooler searching for a career path.

For adults wary of becoming volunteers in public schools or in private schools, it’s important to note that there’s nothing traditional about opportunities to give back. Some people lend an hour every week to read to elementary school students. Others sign up for a once-a-year review of a senior project. Some may simply donate needed supplies while others spearhead fundraising events.

Here’s what you need to know about the need for volunteers at schools and the ways that you can contribute.
