Volunteer Leadership Opportunities

The following are some of the many ways to support Springwater with your time and talents.  Contact the coordinator to learn more!  Also, see the complete descriptions in the Volunteer Handbook.

Springwater supports community involvement as an integral part of the educational goals of the school. Therefore, the development of volunteer relationships is recommended and encouraged.  Our students’ safety is our top priority.  We encourage all volunteers to understand their role and be familiar with School Policies.  We also strongly encourage reviewing the Sexual Misconduct Brochure and Quick Reference Guide on topics about keeping children safe.  Additional training is available from SafeSchools and can be found online and accessed with self-registration.  Click here for training.

Friday Field Studies is a great way to make a difference with small groups of students and be present in Metro Land.  Click here for training and guidance for FFS volunteering.
