Make a Difference As a FWISD Volunteer

 

Become a volunteer today and make a difference in the Fort Worth ISD community!

We make it easy for you – just sign-up for any of these upcoming volunteer events:

 

  • Join Read Fort Worth in providing resources and assistance to FWISD familiesVolunteer callers are needed July 29 and 30 to connect with families to determine what resources they need.  Volunteer August 2-6 for porch visits where fun learning materials and resources are being dropped off at family homes. Sign up for any day of your choice. English speaking and bilingual volunteers are welcome.
  • Wildcat, Welcome Back! Dunbar Pyramid Student Registration and Resource Fair: A variety of volunteer opportunities are available at the Dunbar pyramid block party-style event that prepares families for the 2021-2022 academic year.  Sign up today to volunteer from 9:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. Saturday, July 31 at Dunbar High School, 5700 Ramey Ave.
  • Help Create A Good Learning Environment for New FWISD Families: Pick a volunteer shift of your choice from 9 a.m. to noon or 1-4 p.m. Monday through Friday at the Student Placement Center (SPC). The center helps register for school those students who are new to the District and who customarily hear or speak a language other than English in their home.   The SPC needs English and bilingual volunteers to assist with scanning and organizing documents and bilingual helpers who can make calls to families to let them know their summer books are ready for pickup

“Volunteers change lives with the skills, knowledge and time they give as they help our children reach their goals” said Alma Pohler, volunteer specialist for FWISD’s Family and Community Outreach and Marketing Department. “At Fort Worth ISD, each volunteer is valued and appreciated for their unique contributions.” 

Recently, approximately 90 volunteers registered more than 300 new and returning FWISD students for the 2021-2022 in-person school year at the Rediscover FWISD Online Registration and Resource Fair. Students return to class in-person Monday, August 16. 

If you have the energy,  skills and desire to improve lives in our community through education, please volunteer. We are looking for people like you!
