A South Kingstown child needs you!
South Kingstown CARES grew out of a 1995 District-wide
PTO survey on volunteer usage in schools. That survey concluded that SK needed an organized, district-wide program which would benefit both our students and our community.
That conclusion was reinforced by the School Committee's primary strategic
goal of community involvement and by Rhode Island's Goal 2000, which specified parental and community involvement as one of the key components of school improvement.
Each year, CARES recruits, trains and places nearly 400 volunteers. These
volunteers are comprised of community members, parents, university students and high school students. These individuals collectively give thousands of
hours annually in support to the students and teachers in the South Kingstown School District. We are always seeking new volunteers. If you are
interested in getting involved in one of our volunteer programs listed below, please click the green "Become A Volunteer" button at the top of this page

South Kingstown CARES is a non-profit volunteer organization developed as a
needs-based support for the South Kingstown school district. SK CARES will elicit and effectively utilize community resources that foster academic
success within the school environment.
