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 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:
