We Want YOU!
The Deerfield Parents Network (DPN) needs YOU to volunteer for the First Link program for the upcoming school year of 2017-2018! As you probably know, the First Link program helps welcome new families to the Deerfield community by “linking” them to a current Deerfield parent volunteer. New students get connected to a current student volunteer through the Green Key program but the First Link program is for the parents/guardians. Together, these two programs help new families by offering them practical guidance and answers to their questions while creating new friendships and a stronger community for all. Please sign up as a volunteer n
As a volunteer, you will be assigned to an incoming family by the Office of Admission by the end of May and would be asked to reach out to them before the end of the school year to welcome them. You do not need to be an expert on all things Deerfield! You just need to be willing and able to get in touch with your family before school ends, follow up through the year (late summer before school starts, right before Family Weekend, and some time during the winter) and help guide your family in its initial adjustment to the Deerfield community.
We also have a few other volunteer opportunities which you will see at the end of the volunteer sign up form. Please consider signing up for one of those areas too if you are interested. For these extra volunteer opportunities, you are not obligated by signing up…it just allows us to contact you in the event that we need you in that capacity (explained on the volunteer form)
Thank you in advance for volunteering…we could not do this without you!
