Register with School

Each school district is different, but look on your school district's website for opportunities to volunteer, become a Partner in Education or participate in school events in any way. The idea is to create a connection with the school where you can easily offer your services.

Example: Orange County School District in Florida. You can become an ADD Volunteer and Partner in Education for schools in the district.

If your school district has not developed such opportunities online yet, you should reach out directly to each school by email or a personal visit. This is a good idea regardless of whether you were able to sign up for any services onilne or not. Networking with the school will create good rapport and unexpected opportunities.

    Outreach Email

    Send this email to schools to help you book your first event. Some schools may want to have you multiple times a year or outside their regularly scheduled Appreciation Days.
