Fort Worth ISD Encourages Volunteers to Sign Up for 2018-2019 Year

Volunteers can now express areas in which they want to get involved and get their background check out of the way for the upcoming school year. Voly, Fort Worth Independent School District’s new online volunteer management system debuts, Monday, July 9.

The new system offers volunteers a variety of options for assisting FWISD students, from supporting an individual campus, to helping with a community initiative such as 100X25FWTX, to joining a parent organization. It also allows campus staff as well as District partners greater capabilities for managing and promoting their volunteer opportunities. Additionally, Voly tracks volunteer hours.

“The cool thing about the new system, or one of the biggest functions of Voly, is it allows multiple users to post volunteer opportunities,” said Jennifer Perez, director of the Family Communications Department. “We want to open it up to as many organizations as possible.”

Volunteers can expect an announcement soon with details for submitting their background check application. Early submission helps Family Communications prepare for the school year.

The Fort Worth ISD volunteer program is committed to providing rewarding opportunities for family and community volunteers.
