Grosse Ile Volunteer Effort
GIVE is the volunteer program of the Grosse Ile Schools. In order to volunteer in the schools or attend any field trips, you must first fill out a GIVE Volunteer Background Screening form each school year. Last year's GIVE volunteer clearances expire September 30th.
New this year: GIVE is going paperless!

Although GIVE would prefer that all volunteers submit their information electronically, paper forms will still be available in all of the school offices.
The goal of GIVE is to involve the community in ensuring that every student has the opportunity to achieve intellectual, physical, social, and emotional growth.
How GIVE works
GIVE is a program that utilizes parent and community volunteers in our schools. Any person volunteering in the schools must be a GIVE Volunteer which means that they have submitted a Background Screen Form (police clearance) and that they have also viewed a GIVE orientation.
GIVE Committee members in each of the schools help to facilitate the GIVE program by matching volunteer requests from the staff with the parent and community GIVE Volunteer database.
GIVE Volunteer opportunities are usually communicated via email or purple GIVE notes that are sent home in backpacks, GIVE newsletters, and on GIVE bulletin boards in some of the schools.
After signing up for any particular GIVE Volunteer assignment, a GIVE Committee Member will contact the volunteer for confirmation and any further instructions.
