Pinellas County Schools is always looking for volunteers and mentors. Several mentoring programs support students, including Take Stock in Children, Lunch Pals, Girlfriends, 5000 Role Models, Big Brothers, Big Sisters, and Peer to Peer mentoring. Additionally, volunteers can tutor students, help in classrooms, media centers or front offices, or support Booster Clubs.
You can share your experiences by participating as a speaker, registering via the district’s Speaker’s Bureau or participating in the Great American Teach-In, scheduled for Wednesday, Nov. 16, 2022.
