GrandInvolve was created to increase volunteerism at Fairfax County’s Title I Schools. A pilot program was implemented in the fall of 2014 at Crestwood Elementary School in Springfield, VA.
Buoyed by the success of Crestwood’s program, two additional schools were added in school year 2015/16 and an additional 3 schools were added in school year 2016/17.
As of the spring of 2017, over 100 volunteers are helping at the six schools with 15 action team volunteers coordinating the success and expansion of GrandInvolve. As one of Fairfax County’s 50+ Initiatives, GrandInvolve is a non-profit and everyone involved is a volunteer.
