JTHS Bridge Builders
Joliet Township High School invites all parents/guardians, alumni, and community members to volunteer in the new JTHS Bridge Builders Ambassador Program, which aims to support meaningful communication between JTHS schools and the community.
The JTHS Bridge Builders Ambassador Program has been established to achieve Strategy 6.2 of the district’s Strategic Plan, which calls for the “creation and implementation of a family and community group that aggressively builds relationships between District 204 families and staff in order to enhance the educational experience of all students.”
The overall objectives of the program are to increase parent knowledge about their child’s school and education, to engage parents in the district’s community building efforts, to stimulate the involvement of parents in advocating for their students, and to share information with the school and district.
JTHS Bridge Builders volunteer roles and responsibilities may include participating in campus tours, personal contact with new parents, and other community outreach initiatives.
The benefits of volunteering as a JTHS Bridge Builder include increased knowledge about Joliet Township High School, community involvement, networking opportunities with families and community leaders, and recognition at the Salute to Service Ceremony.
Parents, guardians, alumni, and community members are welcome to join. JTHS is committed to serving a diverse group representative of all students; therefore, applicants will be reviewed and selected in accordance to the commitment to diversity.
Please contact Kristine Schlismann at firstname.lastname@example.org or (815) 727- 6967 if you would like to volunteer or if you have any questions.
