Clover School District Volunteer Program

Building Dreams Through Community Collaboration


Preparing students to succeed is a community responsibility. The Clover School District is extremely fortunate to have a long history of involvement from parents, business and community representatives. We believe that this community has extensive capacity and resources to close the gap between needs and solutions.

Mobilizing resources in an effective manner becomes critical to student academic achievement. By building a partnership infrastructure that is responsive to school and community needs, the Clover School District can effectively and efficiently address student needs, engage the public in education endeavors and ultimately build mutually beneficial partnerships in our community.

Business and education partnerships are unique to the identified needs of individual schools. Some of the ways that community partners may be involved are:
  • Tutor a student
  • Be a mentor for a student
  • Read with a student
  • Organize a volunteer program
  • Be a speaker for schools
  • Organize career days or college tours
  • Provide clerical assistance to a school
  • Provide marketing, public relations, and advertising assistance to schools
  • Chaperone field trips
