Volunteering the UA Way

Volunteer HandbookUnion Academy and volunteering go hand in hand.
When new students arrive, we ask parents to sign a Partnership Agreement. This agreement asks parents to contribute a minimum of six hours a month, or 60 hours per year. Demonstrating respect for this contract is a clear requirement of Union Academy’s original charter. We're proud to say that our families quickly complete that 60-hour goal every year - and many contribute more than 60 hours! 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 who assist in coordinating family volunteer efforts. Each team is led 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?

We'll have special opportunities in the weekly newsletter. We'd also recommend bookmarking 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.
