AAPS Volunteers

Volunteer with AAPS!

  • AAPS Community Volunteer Program

    AAPS welcomes people from our local community looking to help our students by offering their skills, talents and time.

    Who can be a Community Volunteer?

    Community volunteers come from a variety of backgrounds and include retired teachers, college students, employees from local business, and much more. 

    Ways Community Volunteers Can Help

    We have a number of opportunities for Community Volunteers to work with our students including:

    • Work in a Classroom Setting: assist a classroom teacher, specials teacher, English Language Teacher and more.
    • Provide Assistance with one-time School Events: supporting schools by volunteering for one-time events such as a disability awareness day, school beautification day and more.
    • Conduct or Help out with Donation Drives: providing needed items to students and teachers at our schools or helping us as we distribute these items to our schools.
    • Be a Career role model to students: speaking to students about your career, volunteering for a one-time career-related event, judging a engineering, business, marketing or culinary arts competition  and more.

    What is the Time Commitment?

    The time commitment varies, depending on the opportunity. Volunteers can commit to as much as volunteering once a week or as little as once a year. We will provide you with the opportunities that best fit your availability.
