Volunteers in the Waynesville R-VI School District
For the remainder of the 20-21 school year and through summer school (June 3-30), the Waynesville R-VI School District would like to offer VIRTUAL volunteering opportunities to work with students in grades K-5.
- sharing your hobby, interest, or career experience with students
- Read to students or a classroom
- Become a WayConnect Mentor (see below)
The Waynesville R-VI School District and various Community Resource Office groups use volunteers from the community in many ways. Volunteers serve as chaperones at school events, teachers' assistants during class, lead activities at Club TIGER, and much more. Every hour logged in the database is worth $25.43 towards grant match requirements. New volunteer opportunities are constantly opening!
To become a volunteer, complete the required background check form and return it to the Community Resource Office or turn it into your child's school. Once your form has been processed and approved, you will receive a phone call or email to schedule a time to have your volunteer badge created.
Please complete the Volunteer Background Form if you are interested in volunteering.
If you have any questions or need help with your background check form, please click here for the Community Resource Office contact information.
Volunteer as a WayConnect Mentor
WayConnect provides students with highly qualified and effective mentors who engage students in asset building activities to build skills for school success, attendance, and problem solving. Mentors serve as positive role models and motivate students to become their best. They offer students a pathway to expand their life perspectives, overcome obstacles and build on their strengths to make positive choices and develop essential school and life skills. Mentors are not case managers or therapists. They are caring adults committed and skilled at building relationships with young people.
