About Our Volunteers

In 2015, Stratton had over 2,400 hours of mentoring and volunteering. Clocking those hours were members of the Big Brothers Big Sisters Mentors, TALKS Mentors, C-U One-to-One Mentors, America Reads/America Counts Tutors, and a variety of parent volunteers.

65 tutors, 18 mentors, and 54 community and parent volunteers made this a success in our shcool. 

Volunteers are welcomed at all Unit 4 schools. Each year over 1,000 volunteers donate over 15,000 hours of time to our schools: tutoring, mentoring, or assisting in our classrooms. Public school districts cannot success in their mission without the dedication and support of the many volunteers who work in our classrooms. We are grateful for the caring and commitment of our volunteers and can honestly say we cannot do it without you.

What is the senior volunteer program?

Unit 4 Schools, with support from WellCare Health Plans Inc., are piloting a ground-breaking program in the local high schools to bring senior (55 and older) volunteers into the classrooms to assist with the regular classroom teachers with instruction. We are seeking seniors with experience in business, computers, building and technical trades, writing, theater, art, dance, coaching, and other areas.

For more information about this program, please contact Lauren Smith, smithla@u4sd.org (link sends e-mail) or 217-351-3722.
