Helping Hands, Helping Schools: Palm Beach County School District

Volunteer
Palm Beach County
Posted 12 months ago

There is such a diverse need in schools.  Help can be given to teachers by assisting in classrooms,  working with students one-on-one or in small groups, copying, creating bulletin boards, on field day or at special events. Help can be given to students through tutoring or mentoring. Help can be given to office staff, cafeteria, clinic, media centers, and other locations.

We are committed to providing a world-class education with excellence and equity to empower each student to reach his or her highest potential with the most effective staff to foster the knowledge, skills, and ethics required for responsible citizenship and productive careers.

By helping educate and nurture our students, we impact our communities and our world.

The teacher or the volunteer coordinator will provide any training that is needed. A teaching background is not required as volunteers work under the direction of a school’s professional staff.

The qualifications needed to be a school volunteer are only a personal desire to help, a sincere interest in students, an ability to follow school procedures and policies, and a willingness to make a commitment.

Flexible. The volunteer has the opportunity to select the day and time that they are available to volunteer and the school will try to work with that schedule. We only ask that once you make a commitment, that you keep to your assigned schedule since the teachers and staff have planned according to the time that you have agreed to help.

Henry Drummond said, “you will find that as you look back upon your life, that the moments that stand out, the moments when you have really lived, are the moments when you have done things in the spirit of love.”  Do you realize that what you give these children, the time you spend with them is such a gift? And do you realize what a gift that is for you?  One interesting fact about volunteering that you may not know, studies have shown that people who volunteer are healthier.  And doesn’t it make us feel younger and appreciated?
