"Too often we underestimate the power of a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, an honest compliment, or the small act of caring, all of which have the potential to turn a life around.   ~Leo Buscaglia

About the Volunteer Program

What is the Volunteer Program?

A coordinated program which recruits, trains and schedules community members into the School District of Spring Valley.

Why become a Volunteer?

Today there is an increasing need for individualized instruction---fitting the curriculum to the child's needs. Class size and time limit the amount of individual attention each student can receive. This is why YOU are needed. As a Volunteer, you enable the teacher to become more effective.

Volunteers are people of all ages: parents, business leaders, retired seniors, and members of our community. They are people with a desire to help children and a willingness to give of their time, talents and knowledge.

When do Volunteers help?

You may choose a time that is convenient to you during the school day. We will attempt to arrange a schedule convenient to you, the student and the teacher.

Volunteers help in many areas at the Elementary School. You could be:

A tutor or a mentor to a child
