Ancona has a long history and strong culture of volunteerism. Volunteers support our classrooms and teachers as well as community events and activities to help create and maintain a sense of joy and community.
From becoming a parent ambassador, to field trips, to school events, we've got something for everyone. Time commitments range from all (school) year support to day-of activities, arranged to accommodate a variety of schedules.

Room Parents help build community through regular communications within the classroom or grade-band, attend community gatherings, support fundraising efforts, and be a cheerleader for the school internally and externally. They also support the teachers where additional help is needed.
Volunteers will join our Outdoor Learning Educator in the Ancona Farm working on building our green space and planting and growing fabulous things in our garden. Selected weekend mornings or weekday afternoons/early evenings – weather permitting.
