How we fill your request
We work with volunteers to determine their availability as well as their interest in the academic subject requested to ensure we match you with the right volunteer.
Have a friend who wants to volunteer in your classroom?
Make sure they attend one of our information sessions and let us know they would like to volunteer in your class. We’ll be sure to send that volunteer to your classroom after their training and clearance is complete.
What are the steps to getting a volunteer?
1. The first step is to figure out what you'd like a volunteer to do for you.
A clear set of expectations is one of the main factors to creating a successful relationship with a volunteer.
2. Submit a volunteer request form.
Any teacher or school-staff person is invited to submit a request.
3. Once we've received your request, we will do our best to fulfill it.
We share your request with newly cleared volunteers. Unfortunately, we typically have more volunteer requests than volunteers, so we cannot guarantee you will be provided with a volunteer.
4. When we find a volunteer who matches your request, one of our coordinators will reach out to you to make an introduction.
You and the volunteer then meet to discuss goals and expectations and plan out how you will work together.
