District 51 Volunteers are people in the community who share their time, their talents, their skills—and most all, themselves—with students of the Mesa County Valley Schools. They are men and women of all ages and from all walks of life who want to help the schools provide quality education for all children and who have time to donate to school services. No special background is required. Special skills and talents are not necessary. A genuine love for children, some free time, and a willingness to work under professional supervision are essential. Volunteers are asked to attend a volunteer orientation session and are encouraged to take advantage of the many training opportunities, which are provided to enhance their skills. School volunteers work under the immediate supervision of a certificated person.
If working with children, a volunteer must be within the sight and/or sound of a certified staff person. Volunteers who are likely to be involved in one-to-one situations with children on a frequent basis, overnight field trip chaperones and volunteer coaches will be asked to submit a set of fingerprints and a notarized form with information about felony or misdemeanor convictions as required by law in accordance with regulations governing applicants for support staff positions.
