Volunteering in Cambridge-Isanti schools offers a variety of ways to get involved and make a difference in a student's life.

Current Volunteer Opportunities

Did you know we have a strong and growing Adult Basic Education program at Cambridge-Isanti Schools? We are always looking for people to volunteer with our adult learners in this rewarding environment.

Classroom volunteer: Work one-on-one with students on Reading or Math (we do have quite a few students who are low-level math—multiplication/division, decimals, etc. We would never expect a volunteer to work with a student on a subject that they felt was out of their comfort zone).

One-on-one tutoring: This could be with a native-English speaking student who has a low reading level and wants to become a better reader, or, with a non-native English speaker who wants to learn English. (We are seeing a slight increase in requests for ESL classes/tutors).

Free training is provided through the Minnesota Literacy Council if the volunteer wishes. (It is recommended, but not absolutely necessary to be a volunteer for us).

Volunteers in our school district help out in a variety of ways and varying commitment levels.

Some examples are:

BoxTops for Education; count, organize and submit for schools Cut, Collate, Copy
Field Trip Chaperones FACS Weekly Food Shopper
PTO Member Literacy Tutor
Update Bulletin Boards Hang Artwork
Spring Fling Help Spring Carnival Help
Picture Day Vision/Hearing Screening
