School Based Volunteering
Volunteer Services supports school-based volunteer programs through screening, onboarding process, referrals and training assistance. In addition, Volunteer Services coordinates recognition events and awards at the district and state levels. To volunteer, we ask that you complete the online HCPS Volunteer Application and affiliate with the school in which you would like to volunteer. If you need help finding a school, would like to adopt a school, or are interested in a day of service; please call us at (813) 272-4446. Fingerprinting may be required for some volunteer opportunities or upon request. Additional information on fingerprinting is located on the volunteer application.
Mentoring programs consist of caring adults that provide support for students. Mentors work one-on-one or in a group with students within a school for a mutually rewarding experience. To find out more about mentoring programs please call us at (813) 272-4446.
