The Shalom Park Freedom School Needs Volunteers Like You!

We rely on support from volunteers of all ages to provide our scholars with a summer experience they will never forget.

Adults (age 18 and older) are encouraged to volunteer with Shalom Park Freedom School in any way that they can.

High School Students (10th, 11th or 12th graders) can also volunteer in any way that they can. Volunteers in this age group can volunteer without parental supervision. They are also permitted to sign up for a leadership opportunity with the freedom school teen board. Teen Board members will commit to work as school assistants for at least two consecutive weeks between June 18- July 27th, 2018. Hours will be from 8:15am-3:15pm (some days until 4:15pm) five days a week. Opportunities will include working in classrooms, accompanying teachers and students on field trips, planning activities for the classroom, securing and delivering supplies, and other assistance as needed. A swim test and swimming with scholars will be required. Additionally, fundraising will be a component: a movie night and raising funds for the “Challah for Scholars”, a program for providing the scholars with Challah each week during the summer.


Younger Teens (rising 7th, 8th or 9th graders) must be accompanied by a parent or other adult, who has completed the volunteer registration process, when volunteering onsite and offsite. The parent or adult is responsible for the younger teen’s safety and compliance with Freedom School safety and behavior standards.

Younger teens with their parents can volunteer with Level 1 (K-2) classes. Volunteer opportunities include Harambee, On-site Activities, Field Trip Chaperone, Meet and Greet Desk Assistant, Videography/Photography, Site Set-Up/Break-Down, Supply Drive, Field Day Support, Parent Evenings, Finale, and Appreciation Bags for Interns.
