Yinghua relies on the support of its families to sustain the best possible learning environment for students and teachers. Volunteering is a great way for you to make a difference in your child’s school. Yinghua asks each parent or guardian to donate 4 volunteer hours per year. You can make your mark on our community by giving a few hours of your time every now and then, prepping project materials for a classroom from your home or helping with lunch or recess duty on a regular basis.

Not sure where you fit in? Please, take our Volunteer Availability Survey either online or print the form at home and pass your completed form to the Yinghua Office.
