We need volunteers who have knowledge, skills, and interests that will help students learn about career possibilities and what it takes to be successful. There are a variety of ways to engage—mentoring, leading or assisting with a Pathway Club, being a speaker, sponsoring an enrichment activity, and more. We want to match your interests with the needs of students and teachers. Please take a few minutes to complete the Volunteer Interest Form and a GAPS team member will contact you promptly to discuss next steps.
