Volunteer Virtually

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. 

BrightPath is partnering with PENCIL to provide tutoring to elementary students based on the needs of MNPS. Volunteers will provide high dosage virtual tutoring, focused on literacy support, to third, fourth or fifth grade students starting March 1, 2021.

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.
