Volunteers Make a Difference

More than 28,000 people are registered to volunteer in the Wake County Public School System and more are needed.

Schools benefit when they are part of a community, especially a community that is willing to volunteer its time to help students. Schools seek to build this community looking to parents, neighboring businesses and supportive communities.
