Individuals, groups and businesses wanting to impact the quality of education in our schools need look no further. From our dedicated Board of Directors to our passionate Take Stock Mentors and even those committed to help run our Tools 4 Seminole Schools store, volunteers play a crucial role in the success of The Foundation and its programs. Below are just a few ways you can get involved. High school students earn Bright Futures community service hours by volunteering for our programs.Tools 4 Seminole Schools
Tools 4 Seminole Schools
Tools 4 Seminole Schools, needs volunteers to work in the free teacher store throughout the year. Volunteers sort donations, stock shelves and assist at the registration and check-out desks. In addition, volunteers are needed to organize supply drives, book drives and to assist with special events.
Volunteers must be 16 years old to volunteer alone; otherwise, a parent must volunteer alongside them. To schedule your hours or for more information, please contact Becky Miller, Store Supervisor at 407-320-7768 or Becky_Miller@scps.us.
Mentors – Take Stock in Children
Take Stock in Children provides volunteers the opportunity to make a difference in the life of a student. Mentors are caring, compassionate adults who choose to devote their time to young people, offering them support, guidance and encouragement.
Mentors spend 30 minutes a week with their student during the school year, but the difference you make lasts a lifetime! Mentoring sessions take place during school hours at a high school near your home or workplace. The days and times of mentoring sessions are arranged between the mentor and student, depending on their individual schedules and classes.
Our signature events, including Arts Alive and the Golf FORE Education Tournament, all require a team of volunteers for set-up, registration and more. Individuals and groups are welcome to support these events.
For more information, please contact The Foundation at 407-320-0119.
Program & Event Committees
We have groups of dedicated volunteers who help support our programs throughout the year by serving on one of our committees. We have committees that help with Tools 4 Seminole Schools, Take Stock in Children – Seminole, Grants & Scholarships, as well as our signature events, Arts Alive and the Golf FORE Education Tournament. These committees each have their own meeting schedule and needs but each works to fulfil The Foundation’s mission to improve student achievement in Seminole County Public Schools.
If you’d like to commit your time and talent to one of our committees, please contact The Foundation at 407.320.0180.
