Fort Wayne Community Schools - Community Programs

Community Programs Kids

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.
