The Shorewood School District relies heavily on a strong group of parent and community volunteers to provide support in a number of areas. Volunteer duties may involve service in libraries or classrooms, at athletic events or performing art programs. Volunteers chaperon, tutor, mentor and coach youth sport teams. Volunteers are members of advisory committees and booster clubs. Volunteers who work through our four parent organizations are involved in community building, communications, and fund raising for special projects.

Summer Teen Volunteer Program (Grades 7-12)
Each summer, the Shorewood Recreation Department hires a number of teens to assist with a wide array of summer activities in the District. Volunteering is a great way to gain valuable work experience while having fun! More details, include orientation dates and times can be found in the Recreation Departments' summer bulletin or by contacting Megan Phalin, Recreation Supervisor, at MPhalin@shorewood.k12.wi.us or 414.963.6913 x 4.

Volunteer Policy
The School Volunteer Policy requires that volunteer background checks are to be completed every two years. Anyone who volunteers as a tutor or classroom aide, who is a potential field trip chaperone, or who will be coaching or working directly with students on school projects, must have an active volunteer application on file before they begin their volunteer service. Please allow at least five business days for your application to be processed.
