Helping Children Succeed in School—and Life!
With a passion for helping children learn and excel, Judy Davis volunteered with one of Metropolitan Nashville Public Schools. Assigned to a first grade class, she spent a full year one day a week, working one on one with every student. She assisted both those who were advanced and those who struggled with learning.
Judy enjoys children and recognizes that this special attention makes a difference in their lives. She encourages others to visit or call individual schools and ask about volunteer opportunities, which include not only tutoring but also many other ways to contribute to student success. Below are various ways to explore the opportunities:
Contact a school directly to learn about volunteer opportunities.
For district volunteer opportunities, contact the Family Information Center at 615-259-4636 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Contact the Pencil Foundation, one of our community partners that coordinate volunteers on behalf of schools.
Complete the volunteer registration form: http://www.pencilfoundation.org/registration.
