How to Get Involved
PTSA (Parent Teacher Student Association)
The PTSA is a local, self-governing membership association whose main purpose is to promote the health, welfare, safety and education of children and youth in the home, school, community, and place of worship. PTAs traditionally work within a school community, although there are examples of non-school based PTAs working for children in other settings.
A booster club is an organization that is formed to contribute money to an associated club, sports team, or organization. The clubs are generally run and organized by the parents of the students in the supported organization in high schools.
All volunteers who wish to work on a campus must register every year. To volunteer, click here to visit the SBISD volunteer page and register online.
Once registered, There are Many Ways You Can Volunteer...

SpringBoard Mentor Program
SpringBoard is the umbrella for community supported, campus based mentoring in SBISD. Winner of the National Civic Star award, SpringBoard Mentor Programs support over 400 students across more than a dozen SBISD campuses. Hundreds of children are waiting for a mentor! Volunteer today!
SBISD Tutor Programs
Tutors provide that extra academic support for students in need across SBISD. Our literacy tutors are supported by a nationally-recognized volunteer training and resource model. Tutors are needed at all levels and in all subjects. Whether you can tutor weekly all year or just for a few weeks, our students need what you know. Share your expertise today!
Students in over 300 classes benefited in 2005-2006 from volunteers sharing their time as Junior Achievement classroom volunteers. With as little as 5 hours to give, you can bring to life the free-enterprise system as a JA volunteer. Training is provided. Encourage entrepreneurship. Spark a child’s imagination! Be a JA Volunteer!
It only takes an hour to show a child why investing in himself or herself to make the most of the high school years will reap benefits for a lifetime. Texas Scholars presenters give classroom presentations to 8th graders in May about high school and beyond. Training is provided. Motivate students to be their best!
Have time or expertise to share? Campuses need volunteers to help in a variety of one-of-a-kind ways, from maintaining flower beds to career day speaking, to serving as an art museum docent to helping with registration on the first days of school. If you want to help, we want to help you match your time and talents with a school or department in need.
