Anoka-Hennepin Parent Involvement offers strategic opportunities to make a difference in the lives of young learners.

Anoka-Hennepin Schools coordinates three unique volunteer opportunities, which were created strategically and collaboratively between the Parent Involvement and school district curriculum team to ensure that the efforts align with the work we are doing in the classroom. The benefit is that the trained volunteers will be able to respond to students’ individual needs as requested by their teacher.

Volunteers can support reading and literacy by providing children with additional opportunities to foster a love of reading outside of the classroom by introducing various genres of literature, extending students' writing connections, and promoting higher level thinking skills. Volunteers serving these specialized opportunities must attend a two-hour training session held at the Anoka-Hennepin Schools Educational Service Center (2727 N. Ferry St., Anoka).

Register to attend an upcoming Challenge Reading training session:

    •    Tues., Oct. 22 at 10 a.m. - 11:30 a.m
    •    Tues., Oct. 22 at  6 p.m. - 7:30 p.m.


View all training sessions scheduled for the 2019-20 school year.


Volunteers may contact the school district volunteer services office to be assigned to a school with specific needs, or they may volunteer at a school of their choice. Visit to learn more and apply.
