Volunteer Program

The volunteer program at Ocean Palms is designed to help bridge the gap between school, community and students. Our program is structured with the following objectives in mind:

To assist parents in gaining an understanding of the school curriculum.

To help students progress at a faster pace with the help of one-on-one attention.

To establish a better understanding between the administration, faculty and staff with regards to the needs of Ocean Palms’ student and community population.

* In a continuing effort to provide safety and security to our students and staff, St. John’s County requires that you complete a volunteer application if you plan to volunteer in the St. Johns County School District. ~ This includes participation in activities such as birthday or holiday parties for your child in their classroom, field trips, book fairs, field days, as well as readers, tutors, mentors, etc. This also includes DADS, grandparents, or any caregiver who would like to participate in the activities above.

You cannot volunteer until your application has been cleared in the system.

Remember: processing may take up to several weeks. Do not wait until the last minute to apply.
