Chinese School has a volunteer component to ensure that our students have a productive, efficient, and inspired learning experience. Your support as a volunteer is vital to create a successful environment for our students. Volunteering with the Chinese School helps parents and their kids connect to the program on a more personal level. Through volunteering you will get to know the Chinese School staff, teachers, parents and students. You will get to know our strengths, benefits, and growth areas. Your support as a volunteer also lets your students know how much you value their learning. With the help of volunteers we are trying to keep our operating costs lower. Volunteer opportunities range from weekly parents on duty, monthly cleaning, to supporting school activities. There are plenty of volunteer opportunities available that match your interests and schedule.
Volunteer Requirement: We ask student parents to volunteer in school related activities at least once each semester. We also welcome highschool students to volunteer. For families who choose not to volunteer, an alternative to volunteering is to make a donation of $30 per semester per family (in the past, we asked parents to volunteer twice per year, but we need more volunteers starting 2022-2023 academic year). Therefore, the Chinese School will collect from each family a check of $30 at the beginning of fall of each term, the check will be destroyed or returned to the family at the end of spring semester if the family has volunteered at least once each semester; or otherwise the check will not be returned and will be deposited if the family chooses money donation to replace volunteer service. Volunteer opportunities range from weekly parents on duty, monthly cleaning, to supporting school activities. There are plenty of volunteer opportunities available that match your interests and schedule. School staff member may contact you and ask you to help with a special project as well.

We are very thankful for the supports from the parents.
