Academic Volunteer Program

Get involved in your local schools and help empower, challenge, and support our students!

In Centerville Schools, we believe that learning is attainable for all. The mission of the Academic Volunteer Program (AVP) is to involve parents, grandparents and community members to help empower, challenge and support every learner to grow every day by assisting staff in meeting the diverse needs of our students.

Academic volunteer opportunities are available during school hours in grades K-12 and also in one after-school program. Volunteers assist students -- some who may be struggling, others who need to reinforce skills and still others who need enrichment -- in various ways and in many subjects. We try to match volunteer interests and talents with a variety of positions. Click here to view position descriptions.
