Volunteer Virtually

PENCIL Connect is a digital booking service for connecting educators to community leaders with the goal of easily, safely, and flexibly providing engaging classroom experiences. Educators can browse for digital guest speaking engagements, job shadow experiences, and field trips that fit their individual classroom’s needs and communicate with partners directly within the platform.

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.
