Q.What is ViP?
A. ViP stands for Volunteers in Partnership.
Every Uplift Education parent is a member of the Volunteers in Partnership program at their school. It was created to support the relationship between Uplift Education families and faculty. A vibrant VIP program depends on you in two ways: through volunteer hours and voluntary contributions.
Volunteering promotes family fellowship, shows appreciation for the faculty and staff and provides an example of community service and stewardship for the scholars. Parents, relatives and friends are encouraged to participate in a variety of activities through the VIP program.
Every Uplift Education family is encouraged to volunteer every school year. Each school tracks the number of volunteer hours and hosts a volunteer appreciation celebration at the end of the year to acknowledge everyone’s hard work and contributions to making their school an exemplar IB campus.
Contributing to the Volunteers in Partnership program helps the school expand the arts programs, provide for extra field trips and support other special events. Because charter schools receive fewer public dollars than traditional public schools, supplemental funds are essential to providing these benefits for all scholars.
Support through Contributions:
Every Uplift Education family can consider donating to their school’s enrichment fund. Contributions are tax deductible. You may make your contribution online by going to you school website and clicking on “Donate” and make sure you put ViP Fund in the “Comments” section at the bottom of the page.
Support through Volunteering:
Volunteers in Partnership is organized by a team of parents who volunteer their time to work with their Uplift School and designated VIP coordinator. Consider working with these parents to help build a volunteer support system for your Uplift school.
