PTA Committee Volunteer Opportunities

Parent Volunteers Power Burroughs:

In our school of 750 students, teachers and administration rely on dedicated parents every single day. We offer Engagement, Enrichment and Fundraising volunteer opportunities at Burroughs Community School that need volunteers. Luckily volunteering at your child's school is easy--and fun! Donating just one hour of your time this school year can make a significant difference. We encourage, and need, all families to get involved in their child’s education through volunteering. Additionally, it’s a great way to meet friends and foster community within Burroughs. Once you sign up, a committee chair or a member of the PTA will contact you with next steps.

If you have questions or concerns about volunteering at Burroughs, please contact PTA Volunteer Coordinator, Erin Albu, at [email protected]

Thank you in advance for your interest!
