For Teachers

During these unprecedented times, SSV recognizes the importance of continuing to provide academic, and social/emotional support to students. Until further notice, volunteers will connect with students remotely.

  • Please review our Family and School Guide for descriptions of each of our programs and the process and forms required for requesting those services for students.
  • Preparing students for working with a volunteer is just as important as training volunteers for their role. This Mentee Handbook will help your students better understand what is expected of them.

Springfield School Volunteers (SSV) has been matching the resources of the community with the needs of students since 1969. Each year volunteers help students to improve academically, enrich the learning experience and provide encouragement, guidance and motivation through our core programs, which are currently being offered virtually:

  • Mentoring – for students in grades 1 – 12
  • Academic Support – for students in grades 1 – 12
  • Virtual Book Club – for elementary and middle school students
  • The Citywide Read Aloud Program – for Pre-K – grade 5 classrooms [While our traditional program is currently suspended, you may contact us if you are interested in having a volunteer participate in a virtual read aloud.]

SSV also screens potential volunteers interested in serving in other capacities, including field trip chaperones, Science Fair judges, career speakers and PTO members. Anyone interested in volunteering in your classroom or school should complete a Volunteer Application and CORI form or visit our Forms page for more information.

Required Forms to Request Services:

All forms should be returned to Springfield School Volunteers via email to:
or by mail to: 1550 Main Street, Springfield, MA 01103

Utilizing our nonprofit 501 (c) (3) status, SSV is able to serve as a Fiscal Agent to leverage funding and manage accounts that benefit our students and the district as a whole. To learn more, please contact Denise Cogman or Katherine Gasque.
