PINELLAS COUNTY — There are many ways you can impact Pinellas County Schools students. The school district needs volunteers to mentor or tutor students, and help out in classrooms, media centers and front offices.
Community members can eat lunch with students through the Lunch Pals program or share their experiences as part of the district’s Speaker’s Bureau or the annual Great American Teach-In. Volunteers are needed to chaperone field trips and serve with PTAs and School Advisory Councils. Some schools will also provide opportunities to participate in virtual mentoring.
Community members are encouraged to attend a virtual mentor workshop, which will enable them to volunteer and obtain a free Level 1 background screening. At the workshop, participants will have an opportunity to meet other mentors and students and receive meaningful resources.
Workshops are offered virtually and in person. Volunteers will be matched with students who attend schools close to where they live or work. To learn more or to register for a mentor workshop, call 727-588-5050 or visit www.pcsb.org/mentors.
