Volunteer for the 2022/2023 school year

Hi Eakin Community,

Our wonderful events are nearly 100% led by volunteers. Without a committee or team, many of the wonderful things that make Eakin an amazing school cannot go on. Due to the pandemic, our volunteer involvement has taken a hit but we hope to change that around and  make the 2022/23 school year our best yet. Please use this form to sign up so we can contact you throughout the school year or reach out to eakinpto@gmail.com if you have an idea not listed.

90% of our board and regular volunteers have full-time jobs, but one event, one committee or even planning from home can really make a difference. Thank you!
