Volunteer Opportunities

Work with Elementary School Students

Every fall and spring semester, the Gus Bus seeks to recruit dozens of JMU students to work as volunteers on our mobile classroom vehicles, at our elementary school sites, and with our in-home tutoring program. Some university students volunteer with us to complete required hours for their program major or classes, while others seek general experience working with school-aged children. We require that all classroom volunteers and tutors volunteer for a minimum of 2 hours per week for a full semester.
