Volunteers are very important to us at Creative City! Volunteers help further our mission of place-based education. We strongly value the opportunity to collaborate with parents, family members, and our extended Park Heights community. Volunteers bridge the school and Park Heights together to enrich and foster positive community experiences.
Our Current volunteer opportunities are:
Front Desk Support – answer phones and greet guests during our Secretary’s lunch break ( roughly 11:45 – 12:30 daily) and on occasional days when she is not at work. Front Desk volunteers should have comfort on the phone and enjoy working with people!
