Welcome Future Volunteers!

Communities in Schools is excited to be helping students in Bellingham, Meridian, and Nooksack Valley School Districts. We hope to bridge the achievement gap by engaging the greater community. To accomplish this we provide our students with free and accessible academic support, one-on-one mentoring and other enriching opportunities. That’s where you come in!

Volunteer Opportunities


Some students need extra help with math or reading. Others just need someone to talk to. We have mentor and tutoring programs if you would like to reach out and help one or more of our students.

Be a Leader in Your Community

Volunteer to be on a committee or on the Board of Directors! We are lucky to have the leadership and support many generous individuals who donate their time as Board of Directors and Committee members. If you have talent or interest in any of the following areas and want to volunteer your time, contact us! Committees include Marketing/PR, Events, Finance and Fundraising.
