Become an OCE First Mate
We're excited to offer a new volunteer opportunity for the men in our community.
The OCE First Mate program is an opportunity for dads, father figures, uncles, grandfathers, etc... to spend significant amounts of time in our school doing everything from reading in classrooms, to assisting at lunch, to interacting with students during recess. This program specifically targets a group that is statistically less likely to volunteer in schools.
We have full-day and half-day slots available. Interested? Register here!
All participants must be registered WCPSS volunteers.
