Calling parents and community members —
If you are enthusiastic about helping young people define and reach their goals, we’ll want you on our team!
We need Resource Specialists (to help locate and verify scholarship opportunities, and to manage the resource materials in the C&CC); Field Trip Chaperons (for college visits and career day events); ASPIRE Mentor/Advisors (meet once a week with several students to help them stay on track for college and careers), and more. We have a place for everyone in the C&CC, and you need not have gone to college to be an effective College & Career Center Volunteer!
Although there are many different ways to be involved at WHS, we are especially pleased to be an ASPIRE Site. To find out more about what ASPIRE means from WHS students, click here.
To get started, you’ll need complete the online Bethel School District Background Check , an ASPIRE application, and the ASPIRE Mentor/Advisor form. Click on the live-links here to download the forms, and submit them to Mrs. W in the C&CC:
Karen Wiant, College & Career Coordinator
Willamette High School
1801 Echo Hollow Rd.
Eugene, OR 97402
or drop them off in person at WHS.
As soon as the paperwork clears, Mrs. W will be in touch with you to set up a training and schedule your volunteer times. (If you are submitting your forms during our summer break, the background checks might take a bit longer to process. Thank you for your extra patience, and trust that you will be contacted soon.)
Thank you so very much for your interest in investing your time and energy in our students. You are appreciated!
