VOLUNTEER OPPORTUNITIES

We are grateful for the many dedicated volunteers who share their time and talent with our community. We welcome volunteers throughout our school as weekly readers, tutors or mentors, or for support with recess, library, our student kitchen and garden, and with making classroom materials.

Baltimore Montessori Public also hosts a variety of interns and and serves as a site for service-learning partners. Please contact Monica Donnelly (monica@bmpcs.org) to discuss opportunities to get involved. Current areas of need include:

Volunteer reading tutors for Elementary classrooms: Commit to just one or two hours a week at a time that works for you.

Volunteer recess assistants: Commit to helping out at recess on a day that works for you.

Raising a Reader: Our Children’s House classrooms need help rotating book collections in our Raising a Reader bags on Wednesday afternoons, so that students can take home new books every Thursday.

Upper Elementary fundraising committee: Our students in 4th-6th grade are hoping to arrange a community-building trip but need support with their fundraising efforts. 

Adolescent Community Fall Fest committee: The Adolescent Community students organize our annual celebration of the harvest season with a wonderful community event, Fall Fest. Proceeds from this event also benefit the AC’s end of year trip.

Front Garden Team: The Green Team is one of our most active committees and needs support maintaining our beautiful front garden.

Join the HANDS ON! Gala Team: Baltimore Montessori Public has an annual fundraising goal of $245,000 and the HANDS ON! Gala on April 5, 2019 – our annual event to raise fun and funds for our school – is our major fundraising event. Keep an eye out for information or contact gala@bmpcs.org to lend your support.

Connect: Help us connect to colleges and universities as a source for interns, other outside groups to serve as volunteers, or connections to resources for our school.

Stay connected with the Family School Alliance (FSA). Watch for announcements about upcoming events and opportunities to get involved.
