The Volunteer Opportunity Catalogue helps families plan their volunteer hours by providing a resource catalogue of many roles that can be filled by volunteers. Some are one-time events and some of the listings are for opportunities that reoccur each month or even weekly. The catalogue is updated annually. To make it easy to use, the information is divided by seasons and there is contact information provided with each volunteer opportunity.
Why is Volunteering at JCS so Important?
One of the reasons that JCS tuition is significantly less than other Christian schools nearby is that our parents, grandparents and friends of the school fill many roles that would otherwise require additional employees. For example our daily lunch program is staffed primarily by volunteers. If not staffed by volunteers it would be necessary to hire additional employees which would increase the cost of tuition. The concession stand on the high school campus is staffed by volunteers as well. Annually 80+ volunteers put significant effort into our Auction, which raises more than $50,000. The auction and the proceeds it generates would not be possible without our outstanding volunteer team. So join in, get to know other JCS families, it all adds up.
