Become a Volunteer or Mentor

Do you want to make a positive difference in the lives of students? If so, Cumberland County Public Schools is seeking community members who want to become volunteers or mentors.

You don’t have to be a teacher, a counselor, a parent, or a rocket scientist to become a volunteer or a mentor. You simply have to care about the welfare of children and be willing to make a commitment to give your time and talents for a few hours a month.

Volunteers perform services that assist teachers and the entire school system operate more effectively. A number of jobs are available for volunteers that can fit the unique abilities that you have to offer. Jobs include chaperoning field trips, serving as classroom helpers, assisting in the office or library, providing snacks, or becoming a reading assistant.

Mentors facilitate personal and professional growth in an individual by sharing the knowledge and insights that have been learned through the years. Mentorship is more than tutoring—it means helping students develop academic skills, providing encouragement, fostering confidence, and listening.

Mentors and volunteers get the satisfaction from helping others as well as an insight into the issues facing students today. If you would like to volunteer or mentor, please call us at 804-492-4212.
