Volunteering: Offering your Time and Talent
The Shambhala School is infinitely enriched by the commitment of our families who offer time and talent to the school. Not only does volunteer activity reduce costs and fees and allow us to offer bursaries to some families, but this co-creation of the school community by parents exemplifies the kind of generous and warm society we want our children to be part of and is a way for parents to feel part of the community as well.
As a way to help us all be intentional about our contribution, and to help the school track the level of volunteerism it can count on, we ask each family to commit to 30 hours of work each school year. Your hours are tracked on an online tracking form Community Commitment Reporting. Please track your activity each time you volunteer at the school.
We are developing a survey of the skills, talents and passions we have in this year’s school community. Please check back here next time you are on this page and kindly let us know what you might offer.
We strive to support volunteer efforts so that you have a good experience when you offer your time. Please don’t hesitate to contact our Director of Volunteers [LINK TO A NEW EMAIL ADDRESS] if you have questions, suggestions or offers!
Thank you for your time, talent and friendship to this school community.
