General Volunteer Information and Current Needs

Yinghua Academy relies on the support of our parent community to provide the best possible experience for our teachers and students. There are many ways to make a difference in your child’s school community. Whether you can give up one morning every now and then, volunteer for several take-home projects or commit to lunch duty every Thursday, you can make your mark and be a real part of our growing, thriving community. We ask each Yinghua parent to volunteer 4 hours a year. Please follow the steps below to start making a difference at your child’s school today!
