Roosevelt High School Volunteers
Roosevelt has wonderful volunteers!  Please join them!
They are parents, college students, business professionals, and community members.  Volunteering at Roosevelt takes many forms.  No matter your interest, Roosevelt welcomes you; whether it be classroom help and tutoring, one-on-one mentoring, after school tutoring, one-time events like test proctoring and field trip chaperoning, or being involved in the Parent Board.  We welcome any amount of time you can give! 

Volunteering is Easy!

Apply online through our district volunteer link.

  • Type “Roosevelt” under "Schools Preferred."  Indicate your subject of interest.
  • Indicate the days and times that you are available.
  • Due to the number of registering volunteers, Volunteer Services will NOT contact you once you submit your application.  Just attend an orientation that works best for you.


Why else should you volunteer?

"Everybody can be great because everybody can serve."

—Martin Luther King, Jr.

Perhaps the first and biggest benefit people get from volunteering is the satisfaction of incorporating service into their lives and making a difference in their community and country. The intangible benefits alone—such as pride, satisfaction and accomplishment—are worthwhile reasons to serve. In addition, when we share our time and talents, we:

  • Solve problems
  • Strengthen communities
  • Improve lives
  • Connect to others
  • Transform our own lives

Over the past two decades we have also seen a growing body of research that indicates volunteering provides individual health benefits in addition to social benefits. This research, which is presented by the Corporation in a report titled “The Health Benefits of Volunteering: A Review of Recent Research,” has established a strong relationship between volunteering and health: those who volunteer have lower mortality rates, greater functional ability, and lower rates of depression later in life than those who do not volunteer.
