Be a Volunteer

Volunteers are the back-bone of our success here at University Park.  Without them, many of the programs that bring smiles, enrichment, and enjoyment to our school would be impossible. 

 

We are always looking for volunteers that will help faciliate some of the wonderful events held at our school.  Whether you can help one time for one event or you have a passion to be a committe chair or board member, we are always happy to find the perfect opportunity that fits your time and your talents.

 

Did you know?

Volunteering teaches the best life lessons and provides character-building experiences for our kids.  When parents volunteer, so do the kids, and they learn and grow from helping others.  When kids volunteer with their parents they learn about charity, patience, cooperation, discipline, commitment, generousity, kindness, and the value of a strong work ethic...Need we say more?!?
