Gonzaga Prep has always valued the time, talent, and treasure so generously shared by families. The volunteer program has evolved through the years into a vital expression of service that builds community in support of the school.
Participation in the volunteer program has a two-fold purpose:
Your presence demonstrates care for your students by engagement and involvement in helping to nurture the Prep community. You model our mission by living in service to others.
Volunteering helps to offset the costs of services and goods that would otherwise come out of our budget. Tens of thousands of dollars are saved every year with the thousands of hours our volunteers donate to Gonzaga Prep.
All families with students enrolled are encouraged to volunteer 20 hours* each academic year.
Our program offers a variety of choices to fulfill your volunteer commitment. Familiarize yourself with our guidelines
We've changed our program to simplify signups and tracking your hours. Please read about these changes and how to get started in the new system. It's easy, we promise!
ALL ABOUT HOURS
Learn the ins and outs of earning volunteer hours and how to check your family's total hours for the year.
There's a way to volunteer for just about any way you roll, whether it's event setup/cleanup, selling concessions, gift card donations, bulk mailings, and more. We're grateful for whatever ways you get involved, and encourage you to choose an area that may be outside your comfort zone. You'll meet new people, become more involved in the Prep community, and set a terrific example for your student.
