Join the Community. Explore the opportunities. Make a direct impact.

PENCIL Connect is a free online platform and mobile app that houses volunteer needs and in-kind support for individual Metro Nashville Public Schools. Through this free community, members can:

  1. Browse opportunities, such as family engagement, student celebration, teacher appreciation, and/or general volunteerism, to directly support schools across our city
  2. Register for a service opportunity that inspires them
  3. Join a directory of community members, who are available as a resource for educators, to share industry expertise – as a guest speaker, host of a job shadow or field trip, etc.
  4. Stay in the know about PENCIL projects, and ways to support Metro schools
  5. Connect with other PENCIL Partners, who are passionate about supporting our students and teachers

By giving time and talent, you are making a difference in the lives of Nashville’s future leaders
