Parents Association Volunteer Opportunities
Visit the Parents Association section of the Parent Plan-It weekly email newsletter or the parent portal for a complete committee list and contact information. Volunteering time to support the students and staff of George School is a wonderful opportunity to connect with other parents and the larger community. Please join us.
Admission Ambassadors work in conjunction with the Admission Office helping prospective families learn more about George School during the admission process. They follow up with families by phone or email after a campus visit and help at Admission campus events, gatherings, and fairs. Events take place throughout the school year.
Book Club member parents work with the George School community to select books and organize meeting times for discussion.
Bookstore Volunteers work in the George School bookstore during the school day and help on the first day of classes when students pick up their books and school supplies in Marshall Center.
Career Pathways Committee members recruit speakers from various professional backgrounds to make presentations to small groups of students for the annual Career Day, as well as support career education throughout the school year.

Faculty and Staff Appreciation Luncheon members plan and oversee the appreciation event, encouraging all parents to contribute their favorite dishes and/or donate funds.
Fathers Committee was created to explore and provide opportunities for fathers to get involved in school activities and issues that impact our children as well as to build community and actively engage in the school.
George School Fund Parent Ambassadors serve as advocates for the George School Fund within the parent community. They make connections with fellow parents and help to educate them about the importance of philanthropy at George School. This is a good opportunity for parents of both boarding and day students to be involved, as ambassadors can perform outreach on their own schedule from wherever they might be around the globe. The Advancement Office provides training and support.
Hosting International Students during school breaks if students cannot travel home or are unable to make other accommodations is a great help to the school. Parents can volunteer to host for part or all of a school break.
International Parent Reception Committee members attend an afternoon reception in late August for new international families to help welcome them to the George School community.
Mentors for New Parents contact parents new to George School in the late summer and early fall to welcome them into the community and answer questions.
Opening Days Committee organizes returning parents and students to greet, direct, and assist new parents and students as they register during Opening Days.
Parent Inclusion Committee members will engage parents in fostering diversity, equity, and inclusion in the GS community through school-wide social gatherings, cultural events, and community conversations.
Some on-campus volunteer jobs may require a background check. The Parents Association Executive Committee will alert you if this is required of your position.
