    How can I get involved in the Doris Henderson Newcomers School?

    All volunteers must register at https://www.gcsvolunteers.com/. This volunteer registration also serves as a criminal background check form. After our volunteer coordinator has received notification from Guilford County Schools that the volunteer has been approved, appropriate staff will be contacted with the volunteer’s interest and contact information through email. Staff interested in partnering with the volunteer will contact the volunteer and coordinate a schedule. Volunteers should continue to sign in and out at the front office and wear a visitor badge. Volunteers are responsible for logging on and recording their own hours at GCSVolunteers.com.
