Get Involved

When children are valued and their needs are met, society benefits; children thrive and communities unite.


Parent volunteers are a big part of the culture at Chicago Park and there are many ways to be involved.

In addition to time on campus, we occasionally need drivers for field trips and other special events.

For the safety of our children, all parents and volunteers are required to read the Volunteer Handbook and submit the included application.

All drivers are required to complete and submit a Driver Certification Form.

Regular volunteers at the school must have a current TB inoculation and fingerprint clearance from the DOJ.

The gift of time
