Volunteering the UA Way

Volunteer HandbookUnion Academy and volunteering go hand in hand. When new students arrive, we ask parents sign a Partnership Agreement. This agreement asks parents to contribute 6 hours a month for a total of 60 hours per year. We're proud to say that many of our families race by that 60 hour goal each and every year. Our family atmosphere and amazing parents create a warm, inviting, and productive volunteer environment.

How does it work?

We have a group of "parent service teams" that assist in coordinating family volunteer efforts. Each team is lead by a parent volunteer. To check out the service teams and the areas they specialize in, click the link to the right. 

How does the word get out?

Our weekly newsletter always has the scoop on volunteer opportunities. We'd recommend booking this page and checking out the Bulletin Board above. You can also contact the fabulous Amanda Watkins, our Parent Volunteer Coordinator. Why not go directly to the source, right?! You're welcome to sign up and contact our parent service team leaders as well. 

How do I report my hours?

Parents:  We obviously want to give credit where it's due! Make sure you document all of your (much appreciated) efforts on our Volunteer Hours Reporting Form. This includes hours by you and your family as well (grandparents, aunts, uncles, etc). Just remember, if it doesn't make it on that form, we don't know about it! 
´╗┐High School Students:  ´╗┐ Submit your hours on the High School Community Service Reporting Form.  See Mrs. Watkins with any questions.  Students will need to use their UA Google to submit the form.

I want to brag when I hit my 60!

Got you covered! You'll be recognized in the newsletter and also receive a free car magnet to proudly display.
