Jennifer is the Partnership Specialist for the School District 622, North St. Paul, Maplewood, and Oakdale.
Her team has been working to create a database of volunteers and to create a consistent application and screening for volunteers.
The goals include Volunteers that are trained and have knowledge of issues our students face, have clear expectations, have a contact person in each building, know they are appreciated, want to continue to serve in our schools and tell others about their positive experience, and support district initiatives, improvement, and growth.
What does this mean for service clubs:
- Individuals who are already volunteers, for example, meals on wheels, can fill out an individual profile and learn about other volunteer opportunities.
- Rotary as a group could fill out a volunteer application letting district staff know things they would be interested in doing, as well as seeing what needs the district has.
