St. John Paul II Opportunities
Where Can You See Yourself?
At St. John Paul II Catholic School, we not only welcome volunteers from the community, we depend on them. With eager learners in preschool through eighth grade, and a rigorous curriculum, volunteers play an important role in supporting our scholars!
We offer numerous ways to engage:
Work one on one or in small group with scholars on math and reading skills, supporting the teacher, assisting with activities and groups.
Hours: Monday – Friday, between 7:30 a.m. – 1:30 p.m. on a scheduled basis with the classroom teacher.
This program pairs a volunteer with a scholar for a one hour per week session to improve reading and language skills. You will attend a short orientation session to learn a highly effective curriculum that guides your tutoring. If interested, more information is available. Reading Partners has seen proven results in helping Scholars gain and/or improve on fundamental reading skills- a top goal toward closing the achievement gap.
- No formal teaching experience needed
- Must be 14 years or older and complete Safe Environment Training

Support scholars in 3-5th grade or 6-8th grade middle school youth center with homework help, tutoring, educational enrichment and outdoor activities.
Hours: Monday – Friday, 2 – 5 p.m.
Do you have a special talent, area of expertise or experience that you can share with our middle-school scholars? Career exploration, college prep tips, cooking, entrepreneurship, sewing and leadership skills are examples of the topics we would love to cover. Sharing your gifts with our scholars helps familiarize them with new ideas and opportunities.
Hours: Monday – Friday, 3– 5 p.m.
Many people want to help our scholars succeed but aren’t able to commit to a regular volunteer schedule. Throughout the year, volunteers are needed for one-time events such as field trips, health screening day, school picture day, Christmas giving distribution.
