Academic Volunteer Program

Image of volunteer working with studentThe mission of the Academic Volunteer Program is to provide the best education possible by meeting the diverse needs of each student in our schools. We involve parents and the community as helping hands with staff.

Academic volunteer opportunities are mainly 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 staff needs.

Centerville City Schools are fortunate to have parent and community volunteers who are dedicated to supporting our students and staff. We hope you will consider becoming part of this team.

Note: To volunteer for classroom parties and other events at your child's school, please contact your school's PTO officers.
