Get Involved

The District’s WINGS Volunteer Program exists to enhance the educational experiences of students and assist teachers in the classroom. Annually, volunteers donate thousands of hours of service to benefit students. This positive interaction with volunteers often leads to improved self-esteem and academic improvement. In addition, volunteers can help provide a positive environment for students.

Many Ways To Help

WINGS is designed to be as involved as your interests and time allow. Community members can support students and teachers in many ways. Volunteers can work directly with students as tutors, especially in the critical subjects of math, science and reading, or they can be mentors, working one-on-one with students.

How Do I Volunteer?

All volunteers are required to complete the online volunteer application, even if they were previously approved.  Volunteers that do not complete the online application will not be allowed to serve in the District until they do so. Volunteers only need to complete one online application, as it will suffice for all volunteer opportunities throughout the entire District. Please click here to complete the application.

Important information regarding the WINGS volunteer process:

  • Only 1 application is needed per volunteer with the option to select multiple school locations to volunteer.
  • Applications MUST be filled out on an annual basis.  Approved applications are only valid from July 1, XXXX - June 30, XXXX for each given school year.
  • Applications can take up to 24-48 hours to process and become approved. At times some applications may take longer.
  • Verify that all information entered into the application is the correct information for the individual applying.  Utilizing cell phones to submit applications can cause self-population fields that will result in missing/incorrect information related to the applicant which could potentially cause a delay in processing or even a declined application.
  • Approved applications will receive an email from our volunteers@rusd.org confirming your applications approval.
  • Individuals that have applied to volunteer may also contact any school in our district to confirm your approved status.
  • Denied applications will receive a letter in the US Mail regarding the denial.
