Milwaukee Public Schools wishes to thank the many volunteers who are making a difference in the lives of students across the district. In a typical year, MPS volunteers take on tasks such as reading books to children, coaching sports teams, assisting in offices and classrooms, and overseeing playground activities, with more than 2,000 volunteers serving approximately 40,000 hours.
Thank a volunteer on December 5, 2020! This date is designated by the United Nations as a day to honor volunteers across the globe who promote health, well-being, education, and other humanitarian causes.
As students learn virtually this year, more than 200 volunteers are providing critical classroom support every day. Although not face to face with students, they still bring enthusiasm, hard work, and school spirit to the learning environment.
We depend on our community to support students, teachers, and staff and to help provide children with high-quality educational programs in a positive environment. We welcome volunteers who are interested in providing virtual support until conditions are safe to volunteer in person.
