Parent Volunteer Opportunities
EHS is committed to the health and well-being of the students entrusted to our care, and our campus is a place where students are safe and treated with respect and dignity. To that end, and in keeping with diocesan requirements, parent volunteers who assist six or more times a year must be certified in Safeguarding God’s Children, a training designed for the prevention of child sexual abuse. Click here for additional information about the training.
Below is a list of current volunteer opportunities. If you are interested in serving the School as a parent volunteer, we encourage you to attend our Parent Volunteer Rally on Tuesday, August 20, from 10:00 a.m. to noon in the Hildebrand Center's Alumni Room. Questions? Contact Dean of Parent Programs John Colello.

Support the Arts Pillar by helping with gallery openings and all performing arts productions, providing dinner and lunch during rehearsals and Hexagon yearbook deadlines, helping with fundraisers, organizing concession sales during performances, and caring for choir robes and costumes.
Each year, Episcopal High School hosts an annual Gala Auction with one simple goal: to raise necessary revenue for the School's operating budget. The EHS Gala Auction has an impressive number of parent volunteers who dedicate their time to the School through activities such as procuring Auction items or working in the Auction Office. At the first Auction Kick-Off meeting, you will learn about the planning of the Gala and meet the Auction Committee Chairs. You do not have to be an Auction volunteer to attend the luncheon meetings—all EHS parents are welcome! For more information about the Auction, click here.
