How to Become a Volunteer
Thank you for your interest in becoming a North Lawndale College Prep volunteer. While we aim to make this process as straightforward as possible, we also recognize our high level of responsibility for the well-being of our students.
As such, we require an application prior to allowing individuals to volunteer with our school community. Once you’ve completed the application, you’ll be able to register for volunteer opportunities.
We offer two levels of volunteer involvement:
Level 1 Volunteers require background checks and mandatory reporter training. Examples of Level I Volunteers include:
- A parent providing volunteer service in their child’s school or classroom for 10 or more hours per week.
- An individual providing volunteer service for 5 or more hours per week at a school where s/he does not have a child enrolled;
Level 2 Volunteers do not require background check. Examples of Level II Volunteers include:
- A parent providing supervised volunteer service in their child’s school or classroom for less than 10 hours per week;
- Any individual providing volunteer service for less than 5 hours per week at a school where s/he does not have a child enrolled;
Unless you have completed a background check and mandatory reporter training, you are only only allowed to volunteer with students 4 hours per week. If you would like to volunteer for extended hours, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org for next steps.
