In one Saturday morning, you can help a young person make the most important decision of his or her life:
to graduate from high school.
As a Graduation Walk volunteer, you'll be paired with a Des Moines Public Schools staff member and other volunteers to visit the homes of middle and high school students at risk of dropping out. You’ll connect personally with the student and their family, share powerful information about the importance of a diploma, and help them return to the path that leads to graduation.
When students attend today, they achieve tomorrow. We hope you'll share your wisdom and life experience with a young person who could benefit from a caring adult reaching out.
The 2018 Graduation Walk will reach high schoolers behind on credits, as well as high school and middle school students with high rates of absenteeism or who are struggling academically.
Saturday, August 25, 2018
9:00 a.m. to noon
Registration is now closed.
Thank you for your interest in 2018 Graduation Walk. If you have questions, please contact Vanessa Sedrel, Community Investments Manager, at firstname.lastname@example.org or 515.246.2512.
