Volunteers & Partners

Thousands of individuals serve as volunteers in our schools each year. In fact, during the 2017-2018 school year, more than 31,000 volunteers donated approximately 388,000 hours of service in VBCPS. The value of this service is estimated at more than $9 million*.

Volunteer opportunities may include:

  • Serving as tutors, mentors, or guest speakers
  • Providing assistance in classrooms, cafeteria, library, or main office
  • Organizing student enrichment and recognition activities
  • Supporting special events, athletics, school planning councils, and advisory boards
