Volunteers in Public Schools (VIPS)
The Hurst-Euless-Bedford ISD and the HEB Council of PTAs created VIPS in 2001 to recruit and support volunteers who can provide hands-on assistance at our schools. The VIPS objective is to impact student achievement in a positive way, whether directly or indirectly.
Our volunteers come from a variety of backgrounds. They may be members of a group that has adopted a school; grandparents of children in school; or individuals who want to give back to the community. Volunteers can read to students, tutor in a particular subject area, work in the library, or assist with special events. There is almost no end to opportunities in VIPS.
VIPS is administered by Community Relations Liason Carol Scalzo and Director of Communications Judy Ramos.
