Want to volunteer but don't know what to do?  Check out our current volunteer needs here.


The number one reason people don’t volunteer is because no one asked them. Well, we are asking for you to be involved! Your time and knowledge is needed, wanted and appreciated by our staff and students. The diversity of our community and the experiences you can share with our students is valuable to us. Whether it’s a little or a lot of time – at school or at home – mom, dad or grandparent – WE NEED YOU! We could not do it without each of you!

How Can I Help?  

You're in the right spot to see how you can get involved!  On your account profile, you can choose committees to get involved with. Once you choose a committee, we can let you know throughout the year that we have needs in that area.  Be sure to register with Guilford County Schools as a volunteer.  This is required before you can volunteer in any capacity at the school. 

Why Should I Volunteer?  

"When do I have time to volunteer,” you ask yourself. “I am too busy being a parent!”  Volunteering is important for all of us. Volunteering at your student’s school may be one of the most important, life-altering things you can ever do for your child. Why you ask? Because it sends a very clear message to them (and other students for that matter) that you’re devoting your most precious commodity — yourself — to something that’s important to you — their education. It shows them you support them and their teachers and lets them know that what they do matters to you.

Who Benefits?

We’re talking about our teachers and staff… the very teachers and staff who nurture your child everyday throughout the school year. We need your helping hands and smiling faces at our school to help lighten the load for our staff giving them more time in the classroom. We appreciate your time and talents at NWGMS.
