Whether the kids are kindergartners or high school seniors, parents have many good reasons to volunteer at school. Vrindavan encourages parents to volunteer in various school activities.

Getting involved is a great way to show your kids that you take an interest in their education. It also sends a positive message that you consider school a worthwhile cause.Parent volunteers offer a huge resource and support base for the school community. They also show their kids the importance of participating in the larger community.Working with teachers, administrators, and other parents will help you understand your child's daily activities. You'll also tap into trends and fads of school life that can help you communicate with your kids as they grow and change — all without intruding on their privacy or personal space.

Parents of Vrindavan have been participating very actively in the PV Program.

Here are some of the ways a parent volunteer can help:

  • act as a classroom helper

  • mentor or tutor students

  • help children with special needs

  • help organize, cater, or work at fundraising activities such as bake sales or car washes

  • act as a lunchroom or playground monitor

  • help to plan and chaperone field trips, track meets, and other events that take place away from the school

  • help to plan and chaperone in-school events (dances, proms, or graduation ceremonies)

  • organize or assist with a specific club or interest group (if you have an interest in an activity that isn't currently available to students, offer to help get a group started — for example, a chess club 

  • offer to help with story time or reading assistance in the school library

  • sew costumes or build sets for theatrical and musical productions

  • help out with visual arts, crafts, and design courses and projects

  • supervise or judge at a competition

Remember that not everyone is suited for the same type of involvement. You may have to "try on" a few activities before you find something that feels right. If you need ideas, ask your child's teacher, who will likely be glad to help you think of something!
