Volunteers with Urban Academy provide invaluable support in two primary ways: as individuals and through organizations. We focus on supporting volunteer efforts to:

  • Increase student’s motivation for learning
  • Enrich student’s school experiences
  • Strengthen school-community relations
  • Build understanding of our school within the community

Most volunteers giver their time:

  • Working with students in the classroom
  • Provide curriculum enrichment to students
  • Participate in school organizations such as PTO
  • Attending board of trustee meetings
