Inspire Program


Inspire to make a difference in a student’s life!

By sharing just a little of your time, you can inspire greatness in the life of an ISD student. Through our Inspire program, volunteers are paired with students who could benefit from the guidance and mentoring of a caring adult. Upon completing a background check and receiving District approval, volunteers are given the opportunity to meet their Inspire student and establish scheduled visits. Whether it is sharing lunch in the cafeteria or reading together, this time can make a world of difference for a student in need.

Mentors choose to make a weekly lunchtime commitment and work with an individual student, as a positive and consistent friend.

Helping Hands volunteers work in schools in a variety of ways.  Volunteers assist schools with daily duties that help teachers and staff, others choose to work with an entire classroom as a tutor, a reader, or just a friendly and familiar face to help with classroom activities.  Volunteers may commit to a regular schedule or an as-needed basis.
