Classroom Volunteers

Parents, community members, university and high school students are all encouraged to participate as a volunteer in our programs. Volunteers encourage the success of SK students by giving individual attention and help in the classroom or offering a special skill or talent. CARES staff respond to teacher requests for help in the classroom by partnering them with a trained volunteer. Volunteers can work with one or more teachers by spending a few hours a week in their classroom. Classroom volunteers truly make a difference!

To become a volunteer, please complete the application and we will contact you to schedule the CARES required orientation.


All CARES volunteers must complete a police background check and offer personal references.


I have used CARES volunteers to work with children 1 on 1, usually in math or reading. The great thing about using CARES volunteers is that they give young children extra individual attention in a busy classroom. They listen to children read, or help them with their math work, or just lend a listening ear. As a second grade teacher, I find CARES volunteers a valuable asset.
