Volunteers and National Service

Efforts to improve attendance can benefit from an extra shift of adults mentoring at-risk students, knocking on doors and helping families get their children to school on time every day. Here are some resources to help you leverage volunteers and national service organizations, such as City Year, Experience Corps and MENTOR.

Community volunteers can provide an extra shift of adults to help manage attendance and track down absentee students. Several community-based organizations, such as City Year and Experience Corps, provide mentors. New York City has developed confidentiality forms for volunteers working in public schools.
