Volunteer

Every year, hundreds of Valor parents, alumni, faculty and staff volunteer as part of our incredible community. Volunteering helps us step outside our personal lives to participate in something larger than ourselves.

Along the way, we often discover we’ve made great friends, used our gifts and talents in new ways, and had a great time.

  • Complete your Volunteer Profile. Share with us the areas that interest you, and volunteer for specific opportunities.

  • Explore current opportunities below. There are dozens of ways for you to get involved throughout the year — search by your area of interest, or volunteer to help with our most immediate needs.

Most Immediate Needs

Support Safety and Security as directed by the Dean of Students. Volunteers walk the Valor facilities and parking lots to ensure a friendly face to students, faculty, and staff. They observe, greet, and report.

Each of the Eagle Eyes will perform similar tasks each morning on the Valor campus. Both Dads and Moms are WELCOME! The Deans’ office and Safety and Security will provide any specific training needed. No qualifications or specific skills are needed.

Commitment: One morning a week or every other week.

Students need to eat and you can help! The Bistro serves smoothies, paninis, bagels, pastries, coffee and other drinks. The Cafe serves grab and go items: drinks, wraps, pastries, bagels, etc.

Don’t let this scare you! You serve with a Team of Volunteers. Commitment is ~2 hours/week or twice a month. It’s a fun and fast-paced venue to serve, and a great place to connect with students and other parents! Training provided and there is no way to mess anything up.

This is a fun volunteering and an absolutely ESSENTIAL experience.

Help judge events at tournaments. Tournaments occur on Saturdays between November and April. Judging at tournaments is fun and easy. The Valor Speech and Debate coaches will train. Some events are similar to watching a play or a TED talk. Other events require the judge to determine which side (pro or con) won the debate. Typically, tournaments are all day on Saturday, but if you can only judge a few hours, this would still be immensely beneficial. Tournaments do provide food for judges and pay judges a modest fee.

The Valor Parents Association supports several staff appreciation luncheons and activities throughout the year. Joining this team gives you an opportunity to help with the details of these events. All parents will receive emails/text of ways every parent can contribute but this is in the planning.
