PREP4Kids is FREE! Call the PREP4Kids Office 503-281-7764 or E-mail us at prepoffice@prep4kids.org . We will send you a permission slip for your child’s school, or you can download the parent permission slip for your school here. Fill it out and return it to the school office.

The PREP Volunteers will take your child to the class on the day and time listed in the form. Students are returned to the school at the end of the class by the PREP volunteers. We welcome parents who want to attend their child’s PREP4Kids class. You may attend one time without prior notice. After the first visit, we ask that you go through our application/background check procedure like our other volunteers for the safety of the students and the volunteers.

If you are not a parent, but would like to visit a class, please call the PREP4Kids Office to make arrangements.
