Washoe Country School District
Community Events & Training Programs
In an effort to continue to grow, WCSD Volunteer Services developed a training video to assist community volunteers who wish to become Math tutors; as well as to aid those volunteers who wish to review the training.
Read & Succeed
A free training session is also provided by the Washoe County School District for volunteers who wish to tutor struggling readers (Kindergarten through 6th grade). Parents are also welcome to attend to learn interventions to help their own children. Each trainee is provided with a Read and Succeed training booklet which contains valuable information on the academic side of reading to students. Spanish translation through headsets is also available at these training sessions.

Annual Recognition Event
The WCSD Volunteer "Thank You" Reception is held at the Reno Elk's Lodge, and is our way of saying "Thank You" for all of the wonderful work you do! The Volunteer Services Administrator, Lisa-Marie Lightfoot, Staff and AmeriCorps VISTA’s premier this event as the major highlight of the year. Every year over 500 attendees share a fantastic celebration of their service to the Washoe County School District. There are door prizes, entertainment, and refreshments provided by our many partners and sponsors. Thanks to them we are able to make this event possible. We want to thank our Volunteers for your dedication and service! Our district and community would never be what it is without you!
