Fort Wayne Community Schools - Community Programs
The Office of Community Programs is responsible for screening the bulk of volunteers in the District. Both classroom and field trip volunteers are processed using the FWCS Volunteer/Contractor Application. In addition, the office coordinates the Study Connection program. This is the District’s award-winning volunteer tutoring program. Each year more than 500 students receive one hour of one-to-one tutoring services from volunteers at more than 40 local businesses and churches.
Community Programs coordinates a variety of scholarships that are available to FWCS high school seniors. A committee, appointed by the Board of Trustees, reviews applications in March and makes their final recommendations in April. The FWCS Scholarship Application is available on-line.
