Welcome to the GISD Volunteers in Public Schools (VIPS) program!
We value your interest in supporting our students and thank you for your time and care.
To volunteer in GISD, please choose among our twelve campuses and schedule a visit with the school. Make sure to take a valid driver's license or Texas ID with you, as the school will input your information into the Raptor System.
As a volunteer, you will positively impact student achievement by serving as a mentor, tutor, chaperone, guest speaker, library/classroom assistant, etc. For more volunteer opportunities click here.
Thank you for supporting Galveston ISD children.
What are the benefits of being involved?
Available evidence suggests that when adult volunteers are present, students see that adults take school and education seriously. This promotes positive attitudes toward school and contributes to students staying in school, graduating, and going to college.
