Volunteer Frequently Asked Questions
How do I record my hours online?
How do I get in touch with my teacher?
- Ask your teacher how she/he would like to be contacted (usually text or email).
- Let your coordinator know if you have trouble getting a hold of the teacher.
How do I know when school is either not in session or has a minimum day?
How do I refer a friend who would like to volunteer?
What do I do if my placement is not working?
What do I do if I lose my name badge?
Ask your program coordinator for a new one. You may also temporarily use a daily visitor badge from the front office.
What do I do if I cannot make it to my placement?
Anytime you will be unable to make it to your placement, text and/or email your teacher. As a last resort, you may leave a message for your teacher at the front office, however they may not receive the message until the end of the day. If time allows, please also let your coordinator know.
My student isn't responsive to working with me. Any tips?
Ask the teacher for his/her advice as they know what works for each student. Or you can also reach out to your coordinator.
What do I do if my teacher is not giving me enough information on how to work with my student?
If the teacher is too busy to talk with you immediately before or after your session, email him/her asking for a meeting (phone, zoom, in person) so you can express your concerns and get more information. If this does not help, let your coordinator know.
