Our teachers, students, and staff achieve many accomplishments throughout a school year, however, many of those accomplishments would be impossible without the dedication of the many volunteers who sacrifice their precious time and efforts for Northwest ISD. Volunteerism is a culture within our district and campuses. Last year, more than 7000+ volunteers recorded over 122,000 hours within the walls of our classrooms and campuses. The hours equate to more than $3 million dollars!
WHO CAN VOLUNTEER?
In a word, everyone! Whether you are a parent, grandparent, aunt, uncle, friend of the district or business partner, if you care about our students and the education they receive, YOU can volunteer!
WHAT WILL I DO AS A VOLUNTEER?
Every campus and every classroom has a different need. Volunteers assist with various tasks from making copies to serving as chaperones. No matter how big or small the task may be, rest assured you will be welcomed with open arms when you choose to become a volunteer.
HOW DO I GET STARTED?
- First, all participants must complete a background check before becoming an official NISD Volunteer. Safety and security is part of the volunteer process and it’s FREE. Follow this link to begin the background check.
- Second, once the background check has been approved, all volunteers will receive an email invitation to log on to their Virtual Volunteer profile. Using the Virtual Volunteer system will allow volunteers to choose which campus they want to help, record hours worked, and learn of additional volunteer opportunities.
- Finally, once the background check and Virtual Volunteer profile has been completed, call your campus and find out how you can help!
