Volunteering for Charlottesville City Schools
Opportunities for Parents, Community Members, and Students
Our schools depend on volunteers and value their contributions to enhance the programs and services provided for students. Volunteers help our professional staff sustain effective learning environments, enrich the education and experiences of students and build critical partnerships to increase achievement for all students.
Volunteers are placed by schools and offices according to identified needs and perform tasks that support our established goals.
Want to volunteer?
Parent involvement and community support are vital to the well-being of our school system and, in particular, to each student who benefits from the personal attention that volunteers can offer. To volunteer, speak with your child’s teacher, call the school, or attend a PTO meeting to see how you might be involved as a parent.
