Volunteer Virtually

PENCIL Connect is a free online platform that houses individual volunteer needs and in-kind support for Metro Nashville Public Schools. Community members can browse and sign up for opportunities that inspire them.

Proudly PENCIL Virtual Learning Series is a video series created to help bolster Metro Schools online resources for students. Volunteers are creating 5 – 20-minute videos about various educational topics. 

Volunteer Background Checks

PENCIL’s work is to engage groups of volunteers that support initiatives within Metro Nashville Public Schools (MNPS). In addition to this work, we also facilitate the background checks for all volunteers that fill certain roles within MNPS.
