We Love Our Volunteers!

April 23-29 has been designated as National Volunteer Week. This is a special week in which we celebrate those amazing members of our community who donate their time and energy for the benefit of our students, families and staff. Under the leadership of Julie Hennis, the Chapel Hill-Carrboro City Schools Volunteer Office relies on 881 registered district volunteers, with an in-kind value of approximately $900,000. Some of the programs that rely on our volunteers include School Writing Partners, School Reading Partners and First Day Friends (these folks are always on call for our students and they collectively speak 25 languages). One school, Culbreth Middle, currently has eight future educators serving as volunteers.

Our volunteers bring a fresh perspective, expertise, professionalism and immeasurable energy to our classrooms. Thank you to all who volunteer...and thank you to our Volunteer Office staff who recruit, train and place our volunteers.

If you would like to be a volunteer, please contact our Volunteer Office at 919-967-8211 (ext. 28281).

We hope to see you soon!
