POWER OF ONE VOLUNTEER PROGRAM
PARTNERS IN LEARNING
The purpose of the Power of One Volunteer Program is to assist the Shoreline Public Schools to achieve excellent education for all students. Power of One works to match people from the community with volunteer opportunities in the Shoreline Schools. Volunteers bring their time, talents and expertise to classrooms and school libraries from preschool to high school. Ways to volunteer include:
- One-on-One Tutoring or Mentoring
- Leading Small Groups
- Helping with Classroom Lessons and Projects
- Providing Support in Libraries
- Tutoring with After-school Programs
Anyone interested in learning more about sharing their time and talents in the Shoreline and Lake Forest Park schools is invited to join Power of One. Volunteers must undergo a Washington State Patrol background check and be consistent and reliable. Volunteers are asked to give at least one hour once a week, with flexibility for vacations and appointments.
Some of the benefits of joining Power of One include support from the program coordinator, a school district photo badge, and access to free training and workshops. Other benefits include the rewarding feeling of helping others, being part of a school community, and watching children learn.
Power of One is a partnership of the Shoreline-LFP Senior Center and the Shoreline School District. It is also supported by the Shoreline Public Schools Foundation. Power of One was founded in 1996 as a way to get members of the community involved in their neighborhood schools.
