We know that children enjoy greater success in school when the adults they admire most take an interest in their education. Our students’ families are encouraged to commit to 20 volunteer hours each year for the school. These hours foster closer relationships and ensure a more secure learning environment.
This toolkit provides our volunteers with all the information needed to be successful.

Step 1 - Become an approved volunteer
Volunteer Application & Confidentiality Agreement
Each school year, ResponsiveEd requires every volunteer to complete an online volunteer application and undergo a background check. Once you are approved, you must sign a confidentiality agreement. Applications remain active for the current school year. A volunteer must reapply each school year. Please allow up to 3 weeks for processing of your application.
Please read and follow the following volunteer guidelines: Guidelines for Founders Archer Volunteers 2023-2024
Step 2 - Choose your opportunities and get started
Upon approval you will receive an email with instructions to:
- Complete the Volunteer Interest Survey
- Set up your Track It Forward account
- Check out the Campus Volunteer Opportunities
Volunteers are welcome to campus to help before, during, and after school. There are many opportunities that will fit your schedule and talent. Volunteer opportunities are listed on the Archers in Action school newsletter and this Volunteer Toolkit.
Step 3 - Log your Archer Hours
Each time you arrive to volunteer you must sign in at the front office and obtain your badge. When you are done volunteering, sign out at the front office and return your badge. Log your hours at Track It Forward Hour Log or use the kiosk on the right side of the page.
