How to Become a Volunteer

Friends of Canty LOVES and appreciates volunteers!!

Chicago Public Schools requires all volunteers to be screened prior to serving at school. From the CPS website:

"Volunteer activities offer parents and community members opportunities to engage with their local school and support student learning. These experiences are mutually rewarding to students, parents, partners, and schools.

We offer two different levels of volunteer involvement and commitment:

  • Examples of Level I Volunteers

    • Overnight field trip chaperones

    • Mentors

    • Tutors

    • Coaches

    • Non-supervised classroom assistants

  • Examples of Level II Volunteers

    • Day field trip chaperones

    • Assistants in schools with administrative duties

    • Other volunteer activities in contact with students while supervised"
