Volunteers in Education (ViE)
|Welcome to our Volunteer webpage.
We are happy you are considering offering your time and talents to assist Rochester Public Schools students, staff and families.
Rochester Public Schools encourages parents/guardians, grandparents, and community members to share their time, talents and knowledge with our students. Volunteers in our schools enrich the educational programs and strengthen our school relationships with families, businesses, and the community as a whole. The education of our students takes a community effort.
What is Volunteers in Education?
The Volunteers in Education (ViE) program was created in 1977 and serves
to enrich education in the Rochester Public Schools by making the time,
talents, and expertise of parents/guardians, community members, and
community businesses available to students and staff.
Volunteers have played, and will continue to play, an important and
valuable role in education. Our students, teachers, administrators,
parents and the Rochester community reap the benefits from the volunteer
efforts of people who share their talents and resources.
As a volunteer, you will receive many rewards. You will find yourself
filling the needs of students in a role that utilizes your time, talents
and interests in immeasurable ways. Voluntary assistance in the
education of students of all ages offers ways for you to contribute to
your community while, at the same time, experience a deep sense of
