Volunteer Opportunities

Lee County recognizes the importance and the positive impact volunteers can have in a school system. Many schools have stated that the support of their volunteers was a vital part of their school's success. The overall effectiveness and efficiency of a school is increased due to the work of its volunteers.

Volunteers can enhance a child's learning by:

  • Assisting the classroom teachers by preparing materials, facilitating a learning center, and/or providing one-on-one teaching for individual students
  • Mentoring students to be confident in their academic and social abilities and to become productive citizens
  • Provide assistance to create a safe and secure environment for all students in other areas such as the media center, front office, and cafeteria.
  • Assisting with planning and chaperoning field trips, after-school interest groups or sports, and in-school events
