Neighborhood School Centers

Partnering with Dayton Public Schools


The Fitz Center is happy to introduce you to Dayton’s Neighborhood School Centers (NSC). The NSCs are Dayton Public Schools that are centers of their neighborhoods, serving as healthy places of learning for children and families.  Each of these schools works with the Fitz Center to place volunteers on a weekly or one-time basis.

Weekly Opportunities.

If you're interested in volunteering in one of Dayton's Neighborhood School Centers (NSC) on a weekly basis you’ve come to the right place! Before you can begin volunteering you must attend an orientation where you will obtain the skills and resources necessary to be an efficient and effective volunteer.

It is at orientation where volunteers provide information on their availability, interest, and transportation needs to a member of the Community Engaged Learning (CEL) team; thus, allowing the CEL team to place volunteers in the NSCs accordingly.
