I'm District 6 - Volunteer Program
Why Volunteer With Us?
Volunteers at District 6 work together with parents, teachers and staff members to help students realize their full potential. District 6 knows it takes a village to raise a child, and is committed to engaging family and community members in the essential work of supporting our kids' academic, social and emotional development from early childhood to early adulthood. Each District 6 school collaborates with volunteers differently to address their unique needs, and everyone benefits from this partnership.

We encourage prospective volunteers to contact any District 6 school or the District 6 Community Engagement Specialist to learn more about available and potential service opportunities. All volunteers must be at least 18 years of age and complete an online volunteer application (see the menu for this page), which includes passing a criminal background check, prior to serving at District 6. Please review the Volunteer Program Policies and Frequently Asked Questions pages to learn more about volunteer requirements and expectations. If you have additional questions or need further assistance, please contact Jaime Dale, District 6's Community Engagement Specialist at (970) 348-6223 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
