What is the time commitment?
Volunteers give one or two hours per week, for at least one semester. Many volunteers choose to work more hours.

When are volunteers needed?
All opportunities occur before, during, or after the school day (between 7:30 am and 4:30 pm, Monday through Friday, during the school year).

Who are the students?
Our public schools have a very diverse student body. Students served by CSV have requested help or have been referred by their teacher. We have volunteer opportunities from junior kindergarten to 12th grade.
