Guilford Parent Academy Needs Parent Volunteers

Grassroots parent coordinators and Title I parent ambassadors lead parent engagement efforts


Published:

Guilford Parent Academy (GPA) is currently looking for parent volunteers to serve as grassroots parent coordinators at Guilford County Schools (GCS) middle schools and Title I parent ambassadors at Title I schools during the 2016-17 school year.

Click here for a list of which schools have openings for the two volunteer positions. Both the grassroots parent coordinators and the Title I parent ambassadors cannot be a current GCS employee.

Funded by a Race to the Top grant, grassroots parent coordinators can receive up to $150 a month to communicate with other parents about volunteer opportunities, lead parent-outreach activities, assist the school and GPA staff with planning and publicizing parent workshops and increase parent awareness of GPA.

Funded by Title I, Title I parent ambassadors can also receive up to $150 a month. Every Title I school in GCS selects a parent representative to serve as a liaison between parents and school officials to help other parents become more engaged in their child’s educational success, increase the positive school culture at the school and help plan and publicize parent workshops and events.

The full volunteer description for the grassroots parent coordinator can be found online here and the full volunteer description for the Title I Parent Ambassador can be found online here. All candidates should complete the volunteer registration form if they are not already a registered volunteer.

All interested parents should fill out an interest form (Grassroots Parent Coordinator/Title I Parent Ambassador) and turn it in to the school or the GPA office by July 15, 2016 via fax, 336-273-0448, email at parentacademy@gcsnc.com or by stopping by the office at 501 W. Washington St., Greensboro NC 27401.

For any questions, contact the GPA team at 336-279-4924 or parentacademy@gcsnc.com. Find Guilford Parent Academy online at www.gcsnc.com, on Facebook at www.facebook.com/GCSParentAcad or on Twitter at www.twitter.com/GCSParentAcad.
