The Winston-Salem/Forsyth County Board of Education encourages parents and other members of the community wishing to contribute to the intellectual, physical and emotional development of students and well-being of schools to serve as school volunteers. School volunteers contribute services to an educational program without compensation and serve at the will and pleasure and under the supervision of school administrators and staff members.
Since 1999, the Winston-Salem/Forsyth County school system has partnered with the Winston-Salem Chamber of Commerce to provide district-level support of volunteer programs. The Chamber shares responsible for training, volunteer materials coordination. The Chamber manages the Corporate Volunteers Program, the Senior Academy, and the traditional volunteers program.
By Resolution of the WS/FC Board of Education, and pursuant to NC Gen. Stat. 115C-209, the Chamber of Commerce’s Director of Education & Business Volunteer Services will have access to volunteer information. The Director of Education & Business Volunteer Services will treat this information as confidential and may not disclose volunteer information to any other person outside of the WS/FCS.
