Welcome to Virginia Shuman Young Elementary School!

VSY is an amazing, active, dynamic school community. This Welcome Kit is intended to help you and your child utilize the many resources VSY has to offer. We hope the information here helps you to connect with others, find ways to contribute your talents and perspectives, and learn and grow alongside your child this school year.

Volunteer Application and Opportunities


Broward County Public Schools 2019/20 volunteer application is open.  You must be an approved volunteer to chaperone field trips, help in the classroom, or volunteer during the school day.  Apply now!  We need you.

Returning volunteers who received a badge during the 2018/19 school year, do not need to complete an application. These volunteers will be automatically screened for the new school year and approved volunteers will receive a confirmation email.

We invite all other individuals to click here and complete the 2019/20 application.
