    Anyone can volunteer! Parents, guardians, grandparents, community members, business leaders—even students! Volunteers need only to be willing, dependable, positive and, occasionally, confidential. The most important volunteer is you!

    What is the difference between VIA and my school PTO?

    VIA and PTOs share many of the same goals, but they are different organizations. VIA is a district-wide program designed to provide clerical support to teachers and librarians for activities that are part of the school curriculum. VIA has grown to also support other school-related activities, such as health screenings. VIA does not raise money for its activities.
     
    Parent-Teacher Organizations vary in their missions from school to school, but often raise money to support initiatives in and out of school, such as funding playground equipment, field trips and community events.
     
    In many ways, VIA exists to help the district save money, while PTOs exist to help schools raise money.
