Yinghua Academy relies on the support of our parent community to provide the best possible experience for our students. We ask each Yinghua parent to volunteer 10 hours a year. There is a variety of ways to volunteer. Please follow the steps below to start making a difference at your child’s school today!
1. Fill Out the Background Check if You Have Not in the Past 2 Years:
Download and print the form here: Background Check Form
Provide a $20 check written out to Yinghua Academy
Send or drop-off the completed form and check to the front office. Address: 1616 Buchanan Street NE Minneapolis, MN 55413
*Please note that the school is responsible for the background checks due to privacy concerns, if you have questions regarding your background check please contact the front office.
2. Sign-Up to receive Volunteer Information for your preferred Volunteer Activity (this does not mean you are signed up for a specific task, date or time):
Sign-up for Volunteer Information for your preferred Volunteer Activity after clearing the Background Check to indicate your interest and availability, so we can contact the right volunteers for tasks in the future.
Here’s a list of Volunteer Activities and links to get more information:
Ready to commit to make a larger difference? Join the school board, YACA board or chair one of the school’s fabulous events like Chinese New Year. Contact Emilie Anderson for more information.
Not sure where you would fit in best? Unavailable for daytime, ongoing commitments or take-home projects? Please, take our Volunteer Career Skill Survey.
3. Reply and commit to the specific Calls for Volunteers for your Preferred Volunteer Activity.
If you have any questions please contact, Emilie Anderson, the YACA Volunteer Coordinator.
Attention Kindergarten Parents: Abigail Pribbenow at the Kindergarten main office is going to be handling the volunteer needs for the Kindergarten Campus. The temporary nature of the campus has made it difficult for us to get started. If you have already sent in a background check and are interested in being a reader, lunch or recess volunteer at the Kinder Campus please contact her or your Classroom Coordinator. Thank you for your patience!
