Throughout the course of the year there are numerous opportunities to volunteer with Orange County Schools. Some options for you to become involved include:
Large Service Projects
Our schools appreciate assistance with large projects such as community gardens, nature trails and more.
On a smaller scale, your group can adopt a classroom to provide assistance for a specific class of students.
Support a Student
Individuals can make a big difference in the life of a student by volunteering to be a "Lunch Buddy," a tutor or a mentor.
Several times a year, our schools need volunteers to work with us as proctors for End-of-Grade/Course testing. The time commitment for these needs is usually less than 4 hours. A short training session is provided.
Foreign Language Assistance
If you are proficient in a foreign language, we welcome volunteers to work with our English Language Learning students and their families. We are also grateful for assistance in translation of district and school documents so that we can meet the needs of all families.
Experienced grant writers are needed for small-scale grant projects.
Consider donating art supplies o rback-to-school supplies for homeless and disadvantaged students. Classroom teachers occasionally have special material needs that enrich the lives and education of their students but are not covered by district funding. During the school year, we review and post these needs.
Your Special Talents
Do you have special talents or abilities that would enrich the lives of our students? We would like to hear from you. Please contact Michael Gilbert, Public Information Officer at 919.732.3614.
