The Neighborhood Center is a grant-funded branch of Denver Public Schools (Dept. of Extended Learning), with set funds allocated towards a small, paid staff. In order to maintain a high level of quality programming, however, volunteers are needed to assist with individual student needs during After-School tutoring. In addition, volunteers provide much needed help during events run by Skinner and the Neighborhood Center, along with assistance to numerous class instructors during After-School programming hours.

Skinner has a PAVES (Parent and Volunteer Engagement Specialists) team, whose job is to recruit volunteers for specific events, projects, and programs. In addition, there are parent liaisons, who communicate with Skinner teachers to identify areas where volunteerism would benefit the classroom. If you are interested in volunteering but not sure of the best placement, contact us for a conversation. We will attempt to match your expectations with the appropriate placement based upon your skills, experiences and intended outcomes.
The “High Five for Skinner” program aims to create stronger family engagement within the school by asking each family to donate at least five hours of volunteer service per year.
