At various times throughout the year, Virginia Beach City Public Schools is in need of assistance from our community for specific activities. These times of need are referred to as a Call to Action. These Calls to Action target community volunteers with talents matching those needed by any of our 85 schools/centers or at the district level.
When there is a need for community volunteers the red Call to Action tab will be posted on the home page of this site and the specific area of need will be listed below. If you would like to be contacted by email, when a Call to Action is announced, you may subscribe here.
Here is a sample of the types of activities that may be included in a Call to Action:

Experts Needed in the Technical and Engineering Fields
Are you looking for an exciting opportunity to share your knowledge and experience with students in Virginia Beach City Public Schools? Is your business, organization or command seeking to make an educational contribution to enhance student achievement in your community? This may be the chance you’ve been watching for!
VBCPS is looking for experts in the technical and engineering fields and individuals with a background in science and mathematics to serve as Technical Advisors for STEM Robotics Clubs in schools. Technical Advisors will join trained instructors/team sponsors at after-school meetings each week to offer guidance and direction to students during the construction and programming of their robots as they prepare for this year’s STEM Robotics Challenge (SRC) whose theme is STEM the Erosion. The SRC will be held Friday, June 6 at the Virginia Beach Convention Center, 11 a.m.-4 p.m. Currently, 59 schools in the division will have robotics teams competing at the event. Take a look at last year’s event at http://vimeo.com/68246060.
