District Volunteer Information
Help Strengthen Our Community's Foundation
The Gresham-Barlow School District welcomes and appreciates volunteer efforts, no matter how big or small. With your help, our students' education is enhanced. If a child can experience success at school, they will be better prepared to tackle life's challenges and contribute back to our community. We invite you to volunteer in our schools and programs, and we hope you enjoy and grow from the volunteer experience.
