Volunteering with the OPT

At its heart, OPT's culture of giving is built on the spirit of volunteerism. Volunteers - current parents, grandparents, alumni, and friends - are involved in every classroom, event, and fundraiser. As volunteers we get to know other people in our community, we learn from each other, and we grow together to build a stronger community, a stronger Evergreen Academy for all.​

What does volunteering look like?

Volunteering can look like ANYTHING! Sometimes we need people to physically be present to help, sometimes we need donations of goods, and sometimes we need your help from home. Really, there is a job for everyone and jobs in all shapes and sizes!

Volunteer Roles at Evergreen Academy

Volunteering at Evergreen Academy is a wonderful way to get involved in your child’s education! We know that every family has varying ranges of availability to volunteer and there are opportunities for everyone! As a way to keep everyone safe, we ask our volunteers to follow the guidelines below and complete the necessary paperwork and training (as needed for specific roles) in advance of their volunteer commitment. If you have any questions, please direct them to your classroom teacher or the Evergreen Academy Front Office, in email or a phone call!

*New for the Fall of 2023 - Volunteers will need to complete a volunteer application and sign the final page of the volunteer handbook.

**Background check forms are valid for a period of three years. If you have completed one in the past, please check in (prior to volunteering) with the Front Office to confirm when yours needs to be renewed.
