Ongoing Volunteer Opportunities

Perkiomen Valley School District students and staff have a strong history of serving others in our community locally and beyond. Whether it's collecting food or clothing for those in need, raising money for various charities, or volunteering time to help run a special event, PV students and staff are ready to give. 

In 2013, the district began the Day of Service event that is held annually on Martin Luther King Jr. Day. Please learn more about this district-wide initiative by visiting our Day of Service webpage. 

To help foster that spirit of giving and provide a resource to those who want to volunteer, we have created this webpage. You will find links to organizations and websites that will offer you ways to get involved in service projects. Please note that the volunteer opportunities listed below may be for organizations outside the Perkiomen Valley School District, and have not been vetted by Perkiomen Valley School District personnel. Items posted to this page are offered as a free service to the community, and should not be interpreted as being sponsored or endorsed by the district.

If you belong to an organization that could use volunteers and would like to be included on this list, please contact Jessica Lester, Manager for School and Community Engagement.
