THE FOUNDATION FOR ORANGE COUNTY PUBLIC SCHOOLS
AND COMMUNITY OUTREACH


Investing in our children today to
strengthen our community tomorrow.

The strength of tomorrow’s Central Florida community depends largely on the quality of education students receive today. Orange County educators believe that the school system and the community must work together to provide quality education.

The 2018-2019 school year is a special one for the Community Resources Programs. The ADDitions School Volunteers program is celebrating it's 48th Anniversary, and the Partners in Education program marks it's 38th Anniversary! Join us today and make a difference in the lives of our youth.​​

The perfect avenue for individuals to become involved with education in Orange County Public Schools. School volunteers work at the schools of their choice and participate in activities that match their interests, such as assisting teachers in the classroom, designing bulletin boards, working with students, serving as computer tutors, working with art classes, or helping out in the office or media center. Volunteer Now

Volunteer Hours ADD up: The ADDitions School Volunteer program began with 200 volunteers in 1971. Last year, more than 58,397 volunteers contributed more than 737,000 hours. This represents nearly $17.2 million of in-kind contributions donated to OCPS.

Partners Make a Difference: Businesses and organizations can get involved in the school system in a number of volunteer programs such as Partners in Education. At the end of the 2018 school year, the district had 2,872 business partnerships.

Volunteers are subject to Florida’s Sunshine Laws unless the individual notifies the district that they are exempt per s. 119.071, Fl. Stat.

You Can Help Decrease the Achievement Gap!

OCPS, along with the City of Orlando, COMPACT and the Orlando Magic Organization, has accepted President Obama's challenge to participate in the My Brother's Keeper Initiative. This response focuses on recruiting 500 male mentors for our young males of color. Join us as we support this charge.

Open to boys who could benefit from strong male support and role models.  

We are looking for Male Mentors . . .

Mentors are responsible adults who care, listen, and offer encouragements.  Mentors are ordinary people, partners who have one thing in common – a commitment to making the world a better place for our children.
