Outside Volunteer Opportunities

Are you interested in volunteering outside of the school but unsure how to get started or involved? Maybe your student needs volunteer hours for a specific club or scholarship application. While the PTSA has many opportunities for volunteering, most of the time it is for parents/guardians and community members. Additionally the timeframe of volunteer opportunities at the school might not work for some families. Here are some different volunteer opportunities in the community for you, your student or both.
