School volunteers play an increasingly vital role in our schools. They improve instruction by permitting more individual help to students under the direction of a teacher; enrich curriculum by adding the experience of their interests, hobbies and avocations to the classroom teacher’s knowledge; increase community relations by bringing more adults from the community to the children to demonstrate the relevance of their education; and, close the generation gap by providing more opportunities for children and adults to exchange ideas.

    Some of the necessary positions filled by volunteers include working in classrooms, libraries, cafeterias, and playgrounds; tutoring groups or individuals; assisting with office duties; serving as resource persons for special projects such as home construction, marketing, finance, science, or math technology; assisting with career guidance, health, and drug education programs; chaperoning field trips; and arranging and supervising holiday and assembly programs.
