FOVGS: Volunteers Needed

Friends of Virginia’s Academic-Year Governor’s Schools (FOVGS) advocates for all 19 Virginia governor’s schools at the General Assembly. The FOVGS also plans the annual Capitol Day, when students meet and thank legislators for their continued support of the governor’s schools. FOVGS is seeking volunteers for the 2010–11 school year. Help is needed at all levels for strategic, operational, and administrative projects. Our immediate needs include:
  • Secretary: Responsible for minutes, correspondence, and filing. Time commitment expected to be 5 – 10 hours per month.
  • Web Designer: Responsible for designing and maintaining website. Should have knowledge of WordPress. No writing necessary. Time commitment expected to be only a few hours per month after website has been designed.
  • Legislative Consultants: Help FOVGS better navigate the treacherous waters of the General Assembly, including assisting in crafting our message and providing guidance to ensure positive and productive meetings with our legislators.
Time commitment is up to individual volunteers. Please email or call Trish Sigler at or 804-550-9433 for more information or to volunteer.
