Volunteer Opportunities

You can make a difference for the children in the MRH Schools. Recent research tells that when the community partners with schools, the schools improve. When kids see their parents, family members, neighbors, and community members involved in the schools, they know for sure their schools are important and what they are learning is important. There are important, meaningful jobs that work into very restrictive schedules. Call the MRH schools and say you would like to volunteer for the schools. Together we can find a job that fits your talents, interests, and schedule.

Community members can partner with the schools to improve the educational experience of our students. You can mentor an individual student, make phone calls, work in a school garden, prepare mailings, or serve on district wide committees. The same variety of volunteer opportunities that is available for parents is available for community members.
