One of our volunteers working with a student on reading.

"It's the best kind of volunteering you can do." " The teachers say they appreciate me, but I tell them that I get so much more out of it than they do." "It's the best part of my week!" These are just some of the comments received from our 45 Together for Education volunteers. Do you have 30-60 minutes a week that you could donate to our students and teachers? There are volunteer and mentor opportunities in grades K-8 in all subject areas in the Kennett Consolidated School District!

Opportunity: Mentor for a elementary school student.

Description: The goal is to offer consistent positive support and reinforcement in the life of a young person (grades K-8). For mentoring, you would come in weekly to meet with your student, possibly eat lunch with them, play a game, read a book, or just talk. Training and other materials are provided!

Date: Monday-Friday (you can choose the day)

Time: 8:45am-3:25pm (choose any 30 or 60 minute slot of time)

Mission Statement

Together for Education is a catalyst for community involvement in education, seeking to strengthen the partnership among educators, students, parents and the community through quality program development and communication. Together for Education provides support to ensure an outstanding education for the community's children via the public school system.

Description

Together for Education officially began in the fall of 2007, yet the idea began years before when a local company adopted a first grade class at Mary D. Lang Elementary School. It is the embodiment of a deep respect for education and the responsibility of every community member to make it better. It is the concept of working together for the common good, for a cause greater than ourselves. Just saying that education is important is not enough, our actions must prove it. We will only be our best when we all join together for education.

What we Do

  1. Coordinate community members as in-class volunteers and student mentors
  2. Connect the many great organizations that support the Kennett Consolidated School District
  3. Celebrate the accomplishments of the students, teachers and volunteers during the school year
