Project Connect

Celebrating the School District Community

Project Connect offers Abbotsford School District’s 12-month employees who work out of non-school locations (i.e.:  SBO, ITC, Facilities, CORE) an opportunity to connect with our students by volunteering in our own District.

How It Works

The Project Connect team canvasses Principals and Vice-Principals for a list of events or programs that they would like to make available to registered Project Connect Volunteers. These might include:

  • Reading support
  • Field trips
  • Graduation
  • Science Fairs
  • Sports Day, etc.

A list of events is created and sent to Project Connect Volunteers. Volunteers may dedicate up to three (3) days per school year to Project Connect. For example, if you work seven (7) hours per day, you may dedicate up to 21 hours (7 hours x 3 days).

Please note that Project Connect Volunteers must be 12-month employees working out of a non-school location for whom a replacement is not required.
