The H.U.G.S. (Helping Unconditionally by Giving Support) Volunteer Program was launched in the spring of 2017 and was the creation of Dr. Deborah Vereen, the Assistant to the Superintendent (Family and Community Engagement).
The volunteers will set their own schedules and are under no obligation to volunteer for any minimum amount of time. Some volunteers will be in the buildings weekly/monthly and will coordinate their activities more closely with classroom teachers and building administrators, while others will fill more of an “on-call” role and will be contacted periodically by the H.U.G.S. Leadership Team when one-time/special events arise.
