Opportunities: Mobilizing Together for Action

  • There will be opportunities that require us to mobilize with the community for school-based assistance and districtwide projects. These opportunities allow WS/FCS and the community to share feedback and match needs with resources. 

    Opportunities to mobilize for action have included:

    • Being a mentor for high school seniors participating in Senior Academy, a program hosted in partnership with Greater Winston-Salem, Inc. 
    • Complete survey to aid the development of the social-emotional skills that students need to build successful relationships, set goals, manage their emotions, and succeed in school
    • Serving as an Exam Proctor at the end of the year
    • Participating in the WS/FCS 90x25 goal as a Reading Warrior and providing additional support for K-3 students in reading comprehension and vocabulary development

  •  

    Contact the Office of Communications and External Relations at 336.727.2696 to share and learn more about opportunities for:

    • School-based volunteer support to aid school staff and student needs
    • Participating in district wide events, such as College or Career Fairs
    • Contributing to specific needs brought to your attention by an educator or community agency

    The Community Engagement team will help you meaningfully connect to schools, programs, and initiatives.

    HELP TEACH A CHILD TO READ. CHANGE A LIFE.

    WS/FCS has teamed up with Project Impact to organize an army of Reading Warrior volunteers: people like you who know that our community’s success depends on our children’s success. And that helping students to learn to read is a community commitment to closing the achievement gap.

    How can you help? Volunteer just an hour a week tutoring a child, K-3, and be a part of this all in community effort to close the childhood literacy achievement gap.

    We'll give you all the support you need. Training. Materials. Check-ins. An easy-to-use, structured curriculum. Your choice of schools and a range of available times. All our kids need is you and you can change their life for the better, forever.

    Here's a glimpse, by the numbers, into Reading Warriors during 2021-2022:

    • 332 Reading Warriors volunteers registered with WS/FCS and completed the background check process.
    • 210 volunteers selected a school to serve as a Reading Warrior. Of the 210 volunteers, 157 selected 1st grade and 53 selected kindergarten. 
      • 118 tutors completed the 1st grade training to serve one first grade student.
      • 32 tutors completed the kindergarten training to serve two kindergarten students. 
    • 141 kindergarten and 1st grade students served in the 2021-2022 school year.
