Due to the increasing competition for seats in the most successful high schools, PECS scholars and their families need to learn about and begin to navigate the process as early as 6th grade. The PECS Mentor Program provides an additional layer of support and resources to help 8th graders navigate the final portion of the process – application and enrollment. PECS Mentors are volunteers whose purpose in the program is to provide tactical and social-emotional support to PECS Scholars and their families as they journey towards college completion. If you are interested in learning more about the PECS Promise Mentor Program please contact the Director of PECS Promise Ms. Sonji Jones-Cooks


Classroom volunteers work with our teachers and students in classrooms each week to help support academic achievement. Classrooms volunteers take part in a wide variety of tasks including helping support classroom instruction and working with students in small groups. If you are interested in learning more about becoming a classroom volunteer please contact our Academic Dean Janelle Miller at


Career Day is an important day that helps our students learn about achievement from the eyes of professionals. It is a day in which our students have the opportunity to hear from professionals and ask questions about their life stories of success and hard work. Your participation in Career Day helps us achieve our goal of preparing our students for academic success and ultimately, responsible citizenship. If you are interested in participating in this event, please contact Ms. Jami Rhue at


Volunteers are not only our core supporters in the classroom but they also play an instrumental role in helping support PECS students through securing financial support for our school. Volunteer fundraisers take on a variety of roles including planning our annual Family Day school carnival, our Anniversary Party, securing both in-kind and financial gifts, and other fundraising activities. If you are interested in volunteering your time to help support PECS reach its financial goals please contact Shinwe Shelton, Deputy Director of Operations, 773-434-0202 ext. 133
