Increasing Volunteerism

Increasing Volunteerism

The tools and resources included in this module are aimed at improving recruitment, training, and schedules to engage families as volunteers and audiences at the school and other locations to support students and school programs. Increasing volunteerism requires the use of strategies and structures that welcome and value the talents and time of families.

A volunteer is not only someone who comes to school during the school day, but also anyone who supports school goals and children's learning and development in any way, at any place, and at any time.

Resources ToolsResources / Recursos

The resources/recursos are useful for reflection on practice and for use in sharing with families. Resources that can be used with Spanish speaking families have been translated as Recursos.

Any Toolkit resource can be modified and/or copied by school staff, action teams, parent leaders, family liaisons, and community members and used in newsletters, family workshops and professional development activities, and on a Web site.
