Be a Mentor at ACE!

Mentor Upstate is a local program for students who need extra encouragement and support.  Volunteers are matched with one student for the school year. Mentors are asked to commit 30 minutes per week to meet with the student at Augusta Circle, which can take place during breakfast or lunch. If you are interested in helping with this program, please contact Patti Rushing at 355-1204 or prushing@greenville.k12.sc.us.


School Volunteer Guidelines

Greenville County Schools (GCS), in an effort to ensure the safety of all of our students, has implemented additional security checks for school volunteers.  All volunteers must submit an online application to the district and receive clearance from the district before volunteering at any school/center or chaperoning any school field trip. 

All classroom volunteers, school volunteers and field trip chaperones must be registered through the school district as a LEVEL 2 volunteer. 

You will not be allowed to work with children or go on field trips unless you are registered. Please click on the link below to register online!  MAKE SURE YOU REGISTER AS A LEVEL 2 and not a Level 1!  It can take a few weeks for your application to be processed.
