2018-2019 Bosque School Volunteer Opportunities

Volunteers are critical to the success of numerous Bosque School activities! It is estimated that we utilize over 2000 volunteer hours per year.  With an average of ~500 households, those volunteer hours can be broken down to ~ 4 hours per household.  Would you please consider volunteering for at least 4 hours across the 2018-2019 school year?  Attached you will find a pdf summarizing the various volunteer opportunities listed here to help you identify which opportunities best fit your availability. We promise that Bosque Volunteers receive as much benefit as they contribute when volunteering on campus!!

(Please feel free to sign up for as many of these volunteer opportunities that you are interested in or would like more information about. You will receive an email with more details and a more specific sign up form for each volunteer opportunity you select as the respective date draws near.)

 

If you have any questions, please contact Krista Rashap, one of the BPA Volunteer Coordinators, at 505-238-9442.

Date: 05/31/2019 (Fri.)
