We have a variety of elementary, middle and high school campuses to choose from across the Dallas region. There are several opportunities to support students, including reading to a child, tutoring, test prep, goal setting, facilitating groups, one-on-one lunch buddies (activities), guest speakers and career days. We provide training and coaching to help you positively interact and support the growth of our youth. Here are a just a few examples of some unique CISDR volunteer opportunities:
GEMS (Girls Exploring Math and Science)
GEMS students use experiential learning opportunities to strengthen their interest and skills in Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) academic areas. Volunteers serve as guest presenters/speakers, for job shadowing, or simply as helpers during the group meetings.
Events and Projects
CISDR has several annual events or projects that require volunteers. These include Community Luncheons, the CISDR Golf Tournament and our holiday toy drive. Duties for these events may include greeting, assisting with registration, set up, and clean up after an event. Projects duties may include organizing, sorting, and labeling.
CISDR campus staff is involved in additional activities throughout the year which may include working with larger groups (i.e. corporations, small businesses, etc.) to conduct career fairs, field days, holiday parties, field trips, job shadowing, large groups, service learning projects, career panels, and college visits for students.
