Request a Tutor/Classroom Enrichment Volunteer

Volunteers will be most effective when they have clear expectations and goals. Please consider the time that it will take to train your volunteer to be most useful to you before submitting this request. If you have any questions, contact Tom Laursen, Volunteer Engagement Coordinator. Thank you.










Contact Information

The following information is important because your Volunteer Coordinator and prospective volunteers need to contact you during the the volunteer match process, as well as to follow up on how your volunteer is doing during the school year.

Commitment Agreement

As a Teacher, I will:

 have a discussion (in person is best) with the volunteer prior to the first day of volunteering—to make SURE it’s a good fit—that what the volunteer would like to do fits my’s needs and vice versa. I will go over classroom and school rules at the initial meeting and exchange contact information.

 make the volunteer feel welcome and appreciated in his or her classroom.

 contact the Education Fund immediately if volunteer is not a good match.

 respect the volunteer’s time. Tell them in advance whenever they do not need to come in (e.g. field trips, testing, etc.) and have well-defined tasks ready for them each time they come in.

 meet once a semester with volunteer to let them know how they’re doing.

  contact Education Fund once a semester to let them know how the volunteer is doing and respond promptly to any Education Fund communications regarding volunteer.

 be realistic about how a volunteer can help; do not place a volunteer with a student whose challenges are more appropriately and effectively addressed by a professional.
