Give Me Five
Give Me Five is a promise from parent to child and a promise from parent to school or centre.
Parents and other family members are asked to give just five hours of their time during the year. This makes it seem possible to fit a little volunteering into a busy lifestyle.
PTA and staff members are encouraged to think of meaningful ways to include families in the life of the school, so that all parents have a chance to be involved.
The programme coordinator keeps a tally of the number of hours parents have given and volunteers who reach their five-hour goal are recognised for their contribution.
Give Me Five works by matching volunteers to the tasks that need to be done, so parents enjoy their volunteering experience and schools get the best from their most valuable resource – people.
With Give Me Five, schools are able to break down the barriers and open the door to parents and other family members. Parents who have never volunteered at school will take that first step into the building to read to a child or help at a PTA or school event.
