four hands raised in the air with hearts in the center of each, the words welove our volunteers underneath

Did you know that the benefits of volunteering can be enormous?  Volunteering offers help to people in need, worthwhile causes, and the community.   Research shows that the benefits can be even greater for you, the volunteer.  Giving to others can protect your mental and physical health, reduce stress, fight depression, keep your mind sharp, and provide a sense of purpose.  

By giving back to the community, you show our children firsthand how volunteering makes a difference and how good it feels to help others.  

The Edgewood City Schools has more than 750 vetted volunteers who give their time and talent to mentor and support the district's students.  Because of our volunteers, the lives of our students are enriched and opportunities are available that wouldn’t otherwise be available to our students.   If you have questions regarding volunteering at the Edgewood City Schools, please contact your child’s teacher or the building principal to discuss volunteering opportunities.
