Doris Henderson Newcomer's School Volunteer Program

Working with the children at the Doris Henderson Newcomers School has been a rewarding and inspiring experience for the students and faculty of North Carolina A&T State University’s College of Business and Economics.    These students at the Newcomers School are from all over the world and each one of them has a wonderful story to tell.  These children are eager to learn and excited to share their culture with you.  All hours will count toward the student organization community service requirements.

All volunteers for the Doris Henderson Newcomers School are required to register as a volunteer with Guilford County Schools. Please visit https://www.gcsvolunteers.com/ as soon as possible, to register.  It only takes a few moments to complete this process.
