Volunteers are critical and considered a part of our village. We need volunteers to support our students and families. Every year we have several volunteers. The employees of CGW work together with volunteers at Carter G. Woodson School to encourage our parents and citizens to join us in our mission to provide every student with a high-quality culturally relevant education. You can help by becoming a volunteer today.
To ensure the safety of our students, volunteers who will be at the school more than once, must complete an application and undergo a criminal background screening, free of charge. This is to ensure the safety of our children and parents.
Carter G. Woodson School needs volunteers as hall monitors, instructional support, tutors, and village helpers that will encourage our parents. We have opportunities to teach and lead various clubs and organizations we have on campus.
At CGW, we have an array of different activities and clubs. We ask volunteers to start clubs at the school as well. Over the years, CGW’s students have participated in Mock Trial, spoken word poetry competitions, African drumming, dance, and drama. Plus, we have an excellent school farm with chickens and fresh produce. We need volunteers to work on our school farm and help teach our students and parents the importance of agriculture.

CGW is so thankful for volunteers that provide instructional support. Instructional support volunteers can support teachers by working with students in small groups and assisting students with one-on-one assistance. This is an excellent opportunity to support our students.
CGW has a great legacy of spoken word poetry. We are looking for spoken word artists and poets that will teach our students the beauty of spoken word and poetry. We have talented students. This is an excellent opportunity.
Carter G. Woodson School has a long history of participating in the Mock Trial program. Attorney Hazel Mack, the school founder, has coached the teams in prior years as well. We need volunteers that will serve as teachers and advisors. Volunteers will help the students prepare to compete in the local mock trial competitions. This is an excellent opportunity to teach about our legal system and prepare our students for an excellent academic competition.
CGW is always in need of volunteers to support our urban farm. There are many opportunities to expand our urban farm. Also, we have opportunities to help plant and harvest. Volunteers get to bring home free vegetables.
