Q: How do I become a PC advisor Volunteer?

A: PC Advisers apply online. First, we review your background to determine if your skill set matches our principals’ needs. Because Advisers are around children, there is a background check. Our Founder, Carol Hallquist meets with you. You attend a 3-hour orientation, then we’ll visit several schools in the metro area to help you better understand the landscape of volunteering in urban schools.
