Volunteers and Mentors

GISD is always in need of volunteers and mentors! The volunteer program is a great way to get involved with a variety of programs within GISD. The mentor program provides an opportunity for community members to meet one-on-one with a student once a week during the lunch hour. In order to volunteer in our schools, it is required that all volunteers complete a Georgetown ISD background check. When you are approved or if more information is needed, you will receive an email notifying you of your status. If you are interested in becoming a new volunteer or mentor, please fill out an application today.
