“I want to thank and pay tribute to all of our volunteers — those dedicated people who believe in all work and no pay.” – Robert Orben
There are many opportunities at Monarch School for volunteers to make a difference. If you are ready to help some of San Diego’s most resilient kids, we want you on our team.
From tutoring in the Academic Support Program in the afternoon to helping with clothing days, there is a role for everyone here at the school.
All volunteers, including family dinner volunteers, must be over the age of 18 and out of high school. This policy was put into place to respect the wishes and privacy of our students. Anyone spending time with our kids on a regular basis must also be thoroughly screened – that includes finger-printing, a TB test and background checks – to ensure the kids’ safety.
We respectfully ask that you carefully consider your appropriate level of commitment. Many of our kids have been abandoned; we are striving to provide them with caring, consistent support. Once you let us know your capabilities, we will do our best to find a mutually beneficial arrangement that suits your level of commitment.
Download the application packet, complete all four pieces, and return them to the school. Once your application has been processed, you will be placed on our e-mail list and receive notices of current opportunities for volunteering at Monarch.
