We Need You!

You can make a tremendous difference in the lives of our students!  All students need the opportunity to connect with mentors, gain real-world exposure, and participate in experiences that encourage them to dream big.

Volunteers play an important role in Gateway Public Schools. Each day, family members, local college students, and individuals or groups from the community bring fresh perspectives, enthusiasm, and patience into our schools while assisting teachers, staff, and students.

Additionally, these volunteers experience a sense of fulfillment and pride in helping to improve our schools for everyone in the community. It is a circle of giving that we work to foster in our students, too.

Be Part of Something Extraordinary

We currently need assistance in four major areas: academic support and enrichment, college access, career exploration, and organizational support.
